SOMAN CHAINANI

FRIDAY, APRIL 25; 7 PM

SOMAN CHAINANI, author of The School for Good and Evil, Book 1, will introduce the next book in the children’s trilogy, The School for Good and Evil #2, A World Without Princes. Chainani turns all pre-conceived notions of fairy tales upside down with his whimsical, captivating and even subversive tale of two archetypal heroines who are not what they appear to be. Sophie and Agatha return to the School for Good and Evil, where ordinary teenagers train to become legendary fairy tale heroes like Snow White and Prince Charming, and villains like Captain Hook and Rumpelstiltskin. To their dismay, everything at their beloved school has changed. Is it possible that heroes are villains and villains are heroes?
