YA author event with Sharon Cameron, author of The Knowing

Parnassus Books is thrilled to celebrate the release of The Knowing, the companion to last year's #1 New York Times bestselling The Forgetting with YA author Sharon Cameron!

Event Guidelines

This event is free and open to the public.

To join the signing line and have any books signed at this event, you must purchase a copy of The Knowing from Parnassus Books, either in-store, over the phone, or online. Your 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?

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 The Knowing

At once thought-provoking and utterly thrilling, this extraordinary companion novel to Cameron's #1 New York Times bestseller The Forgetting explores the truth and loss that lie within memory, and the bonds that hold us together.

Samara is one of the Knowing, and the Knowing do not forget. Hidden deep in the comfort and splendor of her underground city, a refuge from the menace of a coming Earth, Samara learns what she should have never known and creates a memory so terrible she cannot live with it. So she flees, to Canaan, the lost city of her ancestors, to Forget. 

Beckett has flown through the stars to find a dream: Canaan, the most infamous social experiment of Earth's antiquity. Beckett finds Samara in the ruins of the lost city, and uncovers so much more than he ever bargained for -- a challenge to all he's ever believed in or sworn to. When planets collide and memories clash, can Samara and Beckett save two worlds, and remember love in a place that has forgotten it?
