John Bemelmans Marciano signs MADELINE AT THE WHITE HOUSE at Square Books, Jr.

The time for this event is 11 a.m. 

Readers will see Washington, D.C., as never before, when Madeline takes a midnight sightseeing tour on a magic carpet of cherry blossoms. Invited to the White House by Candle, the presidentÕs lonely only daughter, for the annual Easter Egg hunt and roll, Madeline and the other little girls have a rollicking good time, and introduce Candle to the joys of occasionally breaking the rules. With a bouncy read-aloud text and gorgeous watercolor pictures, Madeline at the White House is in the best tradition of the beloved Madeline books.

Please note that John will not be signing any of his grandfather's books.

Melissa Francis signs LOVE SUCKS

Melissa Francis will be at Square Books, Jr. on Tuesday, September 14 to sign copies of Love Sucks at 5 p.m.

AJ Ashe may have gotten rid of her vampire stalker and her evil ex-teacher, but things are hardly back to normal. For one thing, she still has to maintain a strict look-but-don't-touch policy with Ryan, her hot ex-boyfriend-turned-stepbrother. For another, she has to learn to control her vampire superpowers-which means more than a few dates with Lex, mind-reading professional vampire trainer and too-sexy-for-his-own-good bad boy. And as if that's not enough, she happens to be the key to her father's plans to take over the world . . . and he'll stop at nothing to get what he wants. All this and she's still got to plan the prom. Being a teenager is tough, but being a teenage vampire just flat out sucks!

John Claude Bemis signs THE WOLF TREE at Square Books, Jr.

Wolf TreeJohn Claude Bemis will be signing the sequel to his book The Nine Pound Hammer, The Wolf Tree, at Square Books, Jr. on Tuesday, September 7 at 5 p.m.

Look no further for the perfect book for boys and girls who love fantasy, adventure, and white-knuckle action!

"Can you imagine eternal Darkness, sir?"

So asks the sickly stranger who staggers into Peg Leg Nel's birthday party. Before the man dies, he tells Ray and his friends of a Darkness spreading like wildfire across Kansas, turning good people bad and poisoning anyone who tries to escape. It's clear that though the evil Gog is dead, his devilish machine has survived and is growing stronger.

Now a full-fledged Rambler, Ray leads his friends on a mission into the heart of darkness. Vital to their success is tracking down the legendary Wolf Tree, rumored to be a pathway to the spirit world. Only with one of the tree's limbs can the Nine Pound Hammer be repaired and the Gog's terrible machine finally destroyed. The search for the Wolf Tree grows desperate as the Darkness spreads, threatening Ray, his friends, and all of humanity. 

The Wolf Tree is the second fantasy adventure book in John Claude Bemis's series The Clockwork Dark, and adds new layers of myth and magic to Bemis's original take on American tall tales in The Nine Pound Hammer.

Back to School Bash

Back to School Bash

You've finished your summer reading list, you've gotten all your school supplies, so it means summer is officially over. Right? WRONG! Square Books Junior and the Yoknapatawpha Youth Literacy Council are throwing a back-to-school bash to celebrate the end of summer and the beginning of a new school year!

Here's what you need to know: The party is at Off Square Books on Friday, August 6th starting at 7pm.

There will be a book drive (benefiting the Boys and Girls Club of Oxford) going on at the door so we are encouraging everyone to bring a book (or two!).

Like all good SBJ parties there will be plenty of refreshments and even live entertainment by Oxford's own high school band, The Tape Ghosts!

So put on your dancing shoes, grab a couple books (or some school supplies) to give to a good cause, and put off school starting for one more night!

We'll see you there! And remember, this event is family friendly!
