IT'S NOT JUST A TEEN THING.... Francesca Lia Block, the author of Weetzie Bat, will be at GGP  to read from new novel, Love in the Time of Global Warming, on Thursday, June 11th at 7:00 p.m. 

I hope to see you there and if you do GGP is giving away a signed copy of Love in the Time of Global Warming to one lucky winner.

Seventeen-year-old Penelope (Pen) has lost everything—her home, her parents, and her ten-year-old brother. Like a female Odysseus in search of home, she navigates a dark world full of strange creatures, gathers companions and loses them, finds love and loses it, and faces her mortal enemy. In her signature style, Francesca Lia Block has created a world that is beautiful in its destruction and as frightening as it is lovely. At the helm of Love in the Time of Global Warming is Pen, a strong heroine who holds hope and love in her hands and refuses to be defeated. 
 "Literary-minded readers will enjoy teasing out the allusions to Homer—and possibly even The Wizard of Oz—but knowledge of the classics is not a requirement to be swept up in the tatterdemalion beauty of the story’s lavish, looping language."--Publishers Weekly, starred review
