Calling all young readers! We may be stuck indoors this time of year, but this event will have you setting out on an adventure with The Expeditioners. Join author S. S. Taylor for fun activities, a Q & A, and behind-the-scenes info on her new book. All ages welcome; middle readers are particularly invited to chime in with their questions!
Please note that you do not need to have read (or even started!) The Expeditioners in order to attend. If you would like your own copy, you can find this book at Phoenix Books before, during, or after the event.
About the Book: Computers have failed, electricity is extinct, and the race to discover new lands is underway! Brilliant explorer Alexander West has just died under mysterious circumstances, but not before smuggling half of a strange map to his intrepid children—Kit the brain, M.K. the tinkerer, and Zander the brave. Why are so many government agents trying to steal the half-map? (And where is the other half?) It’s up to Alexander’s children—the Expeditioners—to get to the bottom of these questions, and fast.
S. S. Taylor has been fascinated by maps ever since age 10, when she discovered an error on a map of her neighborhood and wondered if it was really a mistake. She has a strong interest in books of all kinds, expeditions, old libraries, mysterious situations, long-hidden secrets, missing explorers, and traveling to known and unknown places.
