MIKE MULLIN

TUESDAY, DECEMBER 11; 7 PM

MIKE MULLIN, author of Ashfall, will introduce his second book, Ashen Winter. In this new book, it’s been six months since the eruption of the Yellowstone National Park’s supervolcano and Alex and Darla are trying to cope with the new reality of the primitive world that was so vividly portrayed in Ashfall. They head for Iowa to find their parents, but the landscape they cross is perilous, with life-and-death battles for food and power between the remaining communities, and horrifying acts of desperation.

School Library Journal says “Teens who enjoyed Suzanne Collins’ The Hunger Games and Michael Grant’s Gone will find Mullin’s story equally engaging.”
