Bangor Public Library welcomes Catherynne M. Valente for a book talk and signing on Tuesday, June 23, 2019 at 6pm. The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy meets the joy and glamour of Eurovision in SPACE OPERA, Valente's science fiction spectacle for adults, where sentient races compete for glory in a galactic musical contest ... and the stakes are as high as the fate of planet Earth. In her latest book for young readers, THE GLASS TOWN GAME, Charlotte and Emily Brontë enter a fantasy world that they invented in order to rescue their siblings.

Catherynne M. Valente is the New York Times bestselling author of over two dozen works of fiction and poetry, including Palimpsest, the Orphan’s Tales series, Deathless, Radiance, and the crowdfunded phenomenon The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Own Making (and the four books that followed it). She is the winner of the Andre Norton, Tiptree, Sturgeon, Prix Imaginales, Eugie Foster Memorial, Mythopoeic, Rhysling, Lambda, Locus, Romantic Times’ Critics Choice and Hugo awards. She has been a finalist for the Nebula and World Fantasy Awards. She lives on an island off the coast of Maine with a small but growing menagerie of beasts, some of which are human.
