Ashley Poston and Susan Dennard in conversation

Wednesday 22nd May 18:30 - 20:00 at Manchester - Deansgate

Waterstones, Deansgate are delighted to announce a rare event with best-loved authors Ashley Poston and Susan Dennard in their UK of their new, much-anticipated fiction, chaired by journalist and writer Kristina Perez.

Ashley Poston is author of Geekerella and the sci-fi novel Heart of Iron. Her new novel, The Princess and the Fangirl, presents a fandom-fuelled and female-focused twist on The Prince and the Pauper. Told in alternating viewpoints between Jessica Stone, a star on the rise, ad Imogen Lovelace, a woman on a mission to gather enough signatures to save Princess Amara (#saveamara), this new work is a fun, funny and heartfelt look at the joys and pitfalls of celebrity, and the power of geek culture to bring people together.

'A celebration of fandom and happily ever afters, this feel-good reimagining hits all the right notes.'- Publishers Weekly on Geekerella

Susan Dennard is the author of the Something Strange and Deadly series as well as the New York Times bestselling Witchlands series. Bloodwitch, her new novel, is book three of the brilliantly imagined, critically-acclaimed coming-of-age story about two witches destined to save their world from tainted magic. In this crucial next development, the Raider King's plans to claim the Witchlands are underway, and loyalties will be tested as never before.

'A world you'll want to inhabit forever!'- Alexandra Bracken
