BEST FRIENDS Kicks off Fall Kids' Events

Whether you’ve got kids or teens or if you are a fan of kidlit and YA, or if you are simply looking for fun, high octane events that will introduce you to new books and new authors, Brazos is the place to be this fall! Well, we’re always the place to be, but you know that! 

This coming Saturday, 9/14 at 3 pm, we’ll kick things off with a visit from bestselling, award-winning creators Shannon Hale (Princess in Black; Goose Girl; Princess Academy) and LeUyen Pham with their newest graphic novel BEST FRIENDS, the follow up to REAL FRIENDS. It’s a delightful story about popularity, friends, and finding your own path. It’s a fabulous afternoon for the whole family. The store will be packed (we anticipate a sell out) so get here a little early and make a friendship bracelet at our craft table. It’s a fabulous afternoon for the whole family. Reserve your place in the signing line by ordering your book now.

The following week on September 21, at 3 pm, our very popular Middle Grade Book Club returns! This month we’ll be discussing Kelly Yang’s award-winning FRONT DESK, a timely story of an immigrant Chinese family told through the eyes of 10- year- old Mia. Middle Grade Book Club is perfect for readers aged 8 - 12. We facilitate; kids discuss, and it’s always a fun afternoon! You’ll always see a stack of the upcoming title on the front counter!

And mark your calendars for September 28 at 3 pm, as former NFL star and Dancing with the Stars champion, Rashad Jennings, joins us with his latest middle grade novel, ARCADE AND THE GOLDEN TRAVEL GUIDE!  Rashad’s presentations inspire and delight. Maybe he’ll even show us a few of those dance moves!

But that’s not all, because October rushes in with two HUGE events for our YA fans! Reserve your books and place in the signing line now for the Fierce Reads Tour with not one but four amazing, award-winning authors on October 1 at 7 pm!! Meet Sara Faring (TENTH GIRL)  L.L. McKinney (A DREAM SO DARK),  Margaret Owen (MERCIFUL CROW), and Katie Rose Pool (THERE WILL COME A DARKNESS)  Our moderator will be Houston’s favorite YA lit blogger, Kate Sowa!

And on October 7th at 6:30 pm, we’ll be joined by phenomenal debut author Charlotte Nicole Davis as she discusses her GOOD LUCK GIRLS (think Westworld meets Handmaid’s Tale) with New York Times bestselling author Cora Carmack (RAGE and ROAR) You won’t want to miss this evening! Make sure you’ve got a place in that signing line, too!

There’s more to come, and we’re also busy all fall taking amazing authors to schools all around the Houston area! If you’re a teacher or librarian and are interested in author visits, email
