 Book Signing

On Saturday, November 10, from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m, Author Deron Hicks and illustrator Mark Edward Geyer will sell and sign copies of “Secrets of Shakespeare’s Grave,” the first book in a new series, The Letterford Mysteries, published by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Books for Children.

“Twelve-year-old Colophon Letterford has a serious mystery on her hands. Will she discover the link between her family’s literary legacy and Shakespeare’s tomb before it’s too late? Antique paintings, secret passages, locked mausoleums, a four-hundred-year-old treasure, and a cast of quirky (and some ignoble) characters all add up to a fun original adventure. Readers will revel in a whirlwind journey through literary time and space in real-world locales from Mont St. Michel to Stratford-Upon-Avon to Central Park!”
