JUNE 7, 2011 -- The St. Louis County Library Foundation's Reading Garden Event Series and Pudd'nHead Books present young adult author Ally Carter for a discussion and signing of "Uncommon Criminals" at 7 p.m. on Monday, June 27. The event will be held at Library Headquarters, 1640 S. Lindbergh Blvd., St. Louis, Mo., 63131.
The program is free and open to the public. Books for signing will be available for purchase from Puddn'Head Books. Arrive early at 6 p.m. for top-secret activities and stealth training.
"Uncommon Criminals" is about Katarina Bishop, a girl who has worn a lot of labels in her short life. Friend. Niece. Daughter. Thief. But for the last two months she's simply been known as the girl who ran the crew that robbed the greatest museum in the world. That's why Kat isn't surprised when she's asked to steal the infamous Cleopatra Emerald so it can be returned to its rightful owners. Of course, this heist won't be easy -- the emerald is held at a secure auction house and perhaps more troubling, it may be cursed.
Ally Carter is also the New York Times best-selling author of Heist Society and the Gallagher Girls series. "Uncommon Criminals" is the second installment in the Heist Society series.
St. Louis County Library Foundation's Reading Garden Event Series hosts free family events with authors and musicians. Sponsors include Commerce Bank and Companion.
Program sites are accessible. Upon two weeks notice, accommodations will be made for persons with disabilities. Contact St. Louis County Library by phone 314-994-3300 or visit www.slcl.org.
