Harvard Book Store is pleased to welcome back MARIE RUTKOSKI, author of The Winner's Curse, and acclaimed young adult author KRISTIN CASHORE for a discussion of the second book in Rutkoski's The Winner's Trilogy, The Winner's Crime.

Update: The winter of 2015 strikes again, and Marie's flight from New York was canceled. Tonight's event will proceed with the wonderful Kristin Cashore, and we'll be collecting names and e-mail addresses for those in attendance interested in getting signed bookplates from the author to put in their new copies of The Winner's Crime. Marie sends her regrets!

A royal wedding is what most girls dream about. It means one celebration after another: balls, fireworks, and revelry until dawn. But to Kestrel it means living in a cage of her own making. As the wedding approaches, she aches to tell Arin the truth about her engagement: that she agreed to marry the crown prince in exchange for Arin’s freedom. But can Kestrel trust Arin? Can she even trust herself? For Kestrel is becoming very good at deception. She’s working as a spy in the court. If caught, she’ll be exposed as a traitor to her country. Yet she can’t help searching for a way to change her ruthless world . . . and she is close to uncovering a shocking secret.

This follow-up to The Winner’s Curse reveals the high price of dangerous lies and untrustworthy alliances. The truth will come out, and when it does, Kestrel and Arin will learn just how much their crimes will cost them.
