Due to unforeseen travel difficulties, Sarah Gailey will not be able to join us this evening. Tonight's event will proceed with the wonderful Max Gladstone, 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 Magic for Liars. Sarah sends their regrets!
Harvard Book Store welcomes acclaimed writer SARAH GAILEY—author of the novella River of Teeth, a Hugo and Nebula Award finalist—for a discussion of their debut novel, Magic for Liars. They will be joined in conversation by celebrated local author and game developer MAX GLADSTONE.
About Magic for Liars
Ivy Gamble was born without magic and never wanted it. Ivy Gamble is perfectly happy with her life—or at least, she’s perfectly fine. She doesn't in any way wish she was like Tabitha, her estranged, gifted twin sister. Ivy Gamble is a liar. When a gruesome murder is discovered at The Osthorne Academy of Young Mages, where her estranged twin sister teaches Theoretical Magic, reluctant detective Ivy is pulled into the world of untold power and dangerous secrets. She will have to find a murderer and reclaim her sister—without losing herself.
Praise for Magic for Liars
“Full of suspense and magic, with a protagonist as sharp and tart as a lemon, Sarah Gailey has written an unmissable debut.” —Adrienne Celt, author of Invitation to a Bonfire
"There’s something for almost all readers here. . . . Gailey shows us that humans are humans, even when they are magic, and they are still flawed, damaged, and oh-so-interesting." ―Booklist, starred review
"Clever and fast-paced . . . a wonderfully quirky mystery filled with inviting characters and gripping surprise twists." ―Publishers Weekly
