JEFF ZENTNER presents THE SERPENT KING with special guest STEPHANIE PERKINS

Come and spend the evening with two acclaimed YA authors! Jeff Zentner celebrates his debut novel, The Serpent King, which tells the story of young musician Dill Early, who is trying to finish his senior year of high school and escape the infamous legacy of his imprisoned father, a snake-handling Pentecostal preacher. With his two friends, the fashionable Lydia and the fantasy-obsessed Travis, he must find his way and stay true to himself in a confusing world. Kirkus Reviews calls Jeff “a new voice to savor” who “writes with understanding and grace [about] an awareness of the courage it takes to survive, let alone thrive.” Local author Stephanie Perkins, whose books include Anna and the French Kiss and Lola and the Boy Next Door, will be interviewing Jeff in a lively Q&A discussion.
