ALEXANDRA DUNCAN presents BLIGHT, with special guests S. JAE-JONES and JESSICA KHOURY

We are excited to have yet another local YA author to celebrate, and she’s bringing some powerful friends to the party! S. Jae Jones is the author of Wintersong and Jessica Khoury is the author of The Forbidden Wish. Join us for a night of YA fantasy fun!

In Blight, Seventeen-year-old Tempest Torres has lived on the AgraStar farm north of Atlanta, Georgia, since she was found outside its gates at the age of five. Now she's part of the security force guarding the fence and watching for scavengers--people who would rather steal genetically engineered food from the Company than work for it. When a group of such rebels accidentally sets off an explosion in the research compound, it releases into the air a blight that kills every living thing in its path--including humans. With blight-resistant seeds in her pocket, Tempest teams up with a scavenger boy named Alder and runs for help. But when they finally arrive at AgraStar headquarters, they discover that there's an even bigger plot behind the blight--and it's up to them to stop it from happening again. 

Alexandra Duncan is an author and librarian. She lives in the mountains of western North Carolina with her husband and two monstrous, furry cats.

S. Jae-Jones (called JJ) is an artist, an adrenaline junkie, and erstwhile editrix. When not obsessing over books, she can be found jumping out of perfectly good airplanes, co-hosting the Pub(lishing) Crawl podcast, or playing dress-up. Born and raised in Los Angeles, she now lives in North Carolina, as well as many other places on the internet, including Twitter, Tumblr, Facebook, Instagram, and her blog.

Jessica Khoury holds a BA in English from Toccoa Falls College. When not writing, she spends her time on the soccer pitch or traveling the world. She lives in Easley, South Carolina, with her husband and two dogs. Jessica is also the author of OriginVitro, and Kalahari.
