Hunting for a good read? This fall, Kalamazoo Public Library is bringing an unprecedented number of award-winning authors to Kalamazoo!

Opening Author Season at KPL is Newbery Medal winner Katherine Applegate<http://www.kpl.gov/authors/katherine-applegate.aspx>! Applegate will be hosting a release event for her upcoming novel, Crenshaw. Applegate's many books include her award-winning The One and Only Ivan, the Roscoe Riley Ruleschapter book series, the picture book The Buffalo Storm, and the award-winning novel Home of the Brave. With her husband, Michael Grant, she wrote the hugely popular series, Animoprhs, which has sold more than 35 million copies worldwide. This event is co-sponsored by Bookbug<http://www.bookbugkalamazoo.com/>.

Join us on Tuesday, September 22, 7 pm at Central Library<http://www.kpl.gov/central/>. Seating is limited and free tickets are now available at Central Library.
