Ransom Riggs at the Philly Free Library (YOYO)

NOTE: This is a YOYO Event (You're on Your Own).

We read the book, now meet the author of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children.  Riggs will be at the Library to discuss the book's sequel, Hollow City: The Second Novel of Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children

From the library's webpage: Writer, filmmaker, and photo hound Ransom Riggs is the author of the “chilling, wondrous” (People) no. 1 New York Times bestseller Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, a unique mix of young adult fantasy and vintage photography that follows a teenage orphan to a deserted Welsh island and the abandoned, crumbling ruins of the titular facility. The unusual journey continues with Hollow City, and a world of telepathy, time loops, shapeshifters, thrilling fantasy, and vintage photographs. Riggs is also the author of Talking Pictures and The Sherlock Holmes Handbook, and is a former daily contributor to mentalfloss.com.

Books will be for sale at the event (typically it's okay to bring your own copies).  Book signings take place after the author talk.

    I'll be coming by SEPTA. I just finished the first book and I'm excited to buy the second.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
