YA author event with E. Lockhart and Libba Bray

Two incredible YA authors, one amazing event! Join Parnassus Books as we welcome New York Times bestselling authors E. Lockhart and Libba Bray for a discussion and signing of their highly anticipated new novels, Genuine Fraud and Before the Devil Breaks You. Read on for more information about the event, the authors, and their new books.

Event Guidelines

This event is free and open to the public. To join the signing line and have books signed by each author at this event, you must purchase a copy of the author's new book from Parnassus Books, either in-store, over the phone, or online (scroll down). To have books signed by E. Lockhart, you must purchase Genuine Fraud; to have books signed by Libba Bray, you must purchase Before the Devil Breaks You. If you would like to have books signed by both authors, you must purchase both books.

Your book purchase will include a ticket that will admit you into the signing line at the event. By purchasing a book from Parnassus, you are not only supporting a locally owned, independent business, but you are also showing publishers that they should continue sending authors to Parnassus. Think about it this way: You wouldn't bring your own biscuits to the Loveless Cafe, would you?

Can't make it to the event, but still want to purchase an autographed or personalized book? Place your order below, enter "signed copy" plus any personalization details in the comments section of your order, and we'll have the author sign your books and ship them to you after the event!

Video recording, audio recording, and/or live-streaming during author appearances and signings is not possible without prior written permission from the publisher and Parnassus Books.

More About Genuine Fraud

Genuine Fraud is a masterful new suspense novel from E. Lockhart, the author of the unforgettable New York Times bestseller We Were Liars -- the story of a young woman whose diabolical smarts are her ticket into a charmed life. But how many times can someone reinvent themselves? You be the judge.

Imogen is a runaway heiress, an orphan, a cook, and a cheat.  Jule is a fighter, a social chameleon, and an athlete.  An intense friendship. A disappearance. A murder, or maybe two. A bad romance, or maybe three. Blunt objects, disguises, blood, and chocolate. The American dream, superheroes, spies, and villains. 

A girl who refuses to give people what they want from her. A girl who refuses to be the person she once was.

More About Before the Devil Breaks You

The Diviners are back in the thrilling and eerie third book, full of heart-pounding action and terrifying moments that will leave you breathless, by New York Times bestselling author Libba Bray.

New York City. 1927. Lights are bright. Jazz is king. Parties are wild. And the dead are coming...

After battling a supernatural sleeping sickness that early claimed two of their own, the Diviners have had enough of lies. They're more determined than ever to uncover the mystery behind their extraordinary powers, even as they face off against an all-new terror. Out on Ward's Island, far from the city's bustle, sits a mental hospital haunted by the lost souls of people long forgotten--ghosts who have unusual and dangerous ties to the man in the stovepipe hat, also known as the King of Crows.

With terrible accounts of murder and possession flooding in from all over, and New York City on the verge of panic, the Diviners must band together and brave the sinister ghosts invading the asylum, a fight that will bring them fact-to-face with the King of Crows. But as the explosive secrets of the past come to light, loyalties and friendships will be tested, love will hang in the balance, and the Diviners will question all that they've ever known. All the while, malevolent forces gather from every corner in a battle for the very soul of a nation--a fight that could claim the Diviners themselves.
