Cover of the book, the Bone Season by Samantha ShannonBeing clairvoyant means hiding your gifts well and or living in the shadows of society, because if Scion catches you, it could mean your life.

In 2059, a young lieutenant of a powerful crime syndicate is beginning to come into her extraordinary clairvoyant gifts. Called the Pale Dreamer, she enjoys her hard and risky life amongst London's underground elite and feels no regrets about abandoning a more comfortable life under the protection of her unknowing Scion-employed father.

photograph of yuyi moralesMexican-born author, artist and storyteller Yuyi Morales spoke little English when she moved to California with her American husband and young son and missed her family and friends. To lift her spirits, her mother-in-law encouraged Yuyi to visit the public library. The books she found there inspired her to make her own paper and puppets, paint and, eventually, write and illustrate her own award-winning picture books. 

Join us Oct. 5 for our inaugural Saturday Morning Story Time as we celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month with one our most accomplished writer illustrators.
