*CANCELLED* KATHERINE APPLEGATE at Books Inc. Palo Alto

Cancelled Katherine Applegate banner

This event has been cancelled and we are working on rescheduling. Apologies for any inconveniences this may cause you.

New York Times-bestselling and award-winning author Katherine Applegate shares her the first book in her much-buzzed new middle grade series, Endling: The Last. (Ages 8+)

I REMEMBERED
with a sudden pang, my mother's words the last time we were together: It's never wrong to hope, Byx.

Of course, she'd also said: Unless the truth says otherwise.

Byx is used to being the youngest and the smallest. But for all her life, she's also been part of something bigger--part of a family, part of a pack. Until the terrible day Byx finds herself alone, the last of the dairnes. The endling.

For dairnes, the pack is everything: root and branch, heart and soul. Byx is determined to see if the legends she's heard over the years about others of her kind are true. She sets off on a quest, traveling through the war-torn kingdom of Nedarra. Along the way, she meets new allies who each have their own motivation for joining her: Tobble, the worthy wobbyk; Khara, the girl of many disguises; Renzo, the thief with honor; and Gambler, the principled felivet.

They start as Byx's friends and become her family, and together they uncover a secret that will threaten the existence of not just the dairnes but every other creature in their world.

One of Books Inc.’s favorite aspects of being booksellers is getting the chance to welcome and host hundreds of authors a year, from house-hold names to local, debut authors and we look forward to continuing to provide the Bay Area with “The Experience You Can’t Download” in our stores when we can assure authors and guests that it is safe to do so. In the meantime, we are working on an exciting list of virtual events for both adults and children and we look forward to exploring this new format with you.

Sales equate success, and as with in-store events, booksales made from an independent bookstore benefit the author, publisher, and lead to future event bookings. Please help us keep the Bay Area the wonderful literary hub that it is by supporting your local Books Inc.
