Doors open 30 minutes before the start of the event.

Debut author Sarah Kozloff offers a breathtaking and cinematic epic fantasy of a ruler coming of age in A Queen in Hiding first in the quartet of The Nine Realms series.

Exiled and hunted, Cerúlia, Princess of Weirandale, knows she has one destiny.

Her enemies failed to kill her, and no one harboring her is safe. Raised in obscurity, she has no resources, no army, nothing that can help her against her enemies.

Except their gods.

Join us in the Rare Book Room to hear Sarah Kozloff discuss the first book in the The Nine Realms quartet! Sarah will be joined in conversation by S.A. Chakraborty, with Christina Orlando as moderator.
