Upside-Down Magic with Sarah Mlynowski, Mon., Jan 29, 3:30 pm

Join us Mon., Jan. 29, 3:30 pm as Sarah Mlynowski will give a reading from her Upside-Down Magic series, and then stick around to sign books and talk with fans.

Upside-Down Magic is an offbeat series about a group of misfits who set out to prove that life on the other side of ordinary has its charms. It’s never easy when your magic goes wonky. For Nory, this means that instead of being able to turn into a dragon or a kitten, she turns into both of them at the same time–a dritten. For Elliott, the simple act of conjuring fire from his fingertips turns into a fully frozen failure. For Andres, wonky magic means he’s always floating in the air, bouncing off the walls, or sitting on the ceiling. For Bax, a bad moment of magic will turn him into a… actually, he’d rather not talk about that.

In their classroom, lessons are unconventional, students are unpredictable, and magic has a tendency to turn wonky at the worst possible moments. It’s always amazing the trouble a little wonky magic can cause.

Sarah is the author of both the Whatever After and Magic in Manhattan series, as well as Don’t Even Think About ItMilkrun, Fishbowl, As Seen on TV, Monkey Business, Gimme a Call, Ten Things We Did (And Probably Shouldn’t Have), and How to be Bad (along with E. Lockhart and Lauren Myracle).

Sarah’s books have been translated into twenty-nine languages and optioned to Hollywood. She now lives in New York City with her husband and two daughters.
