We are beyond thrilled to host #1 bestselling author Ransom Riggs on the release date of A MAP OF DAYS, the fourth book in the Miss Peregrine's Peculiar Children series. Ransom will read from and talk about his new book, followed by a Q & A and book signing. Riggs’ master storytelling has been praised for the underlying message to “accept yourself and others; celebrate difference and oddity; never lose your sense of wonder" (Financial Times) and hailed for “a modern sensibility, a mischievous darkness and an understanding of what it feels like to be young that can be moving and thought-provoking” (The New York Times Book Review). Now, in A MAP OF DAYS, Riggs reveals even more secrets of the peculiar world, set against the rich landscapes of American history as Jacob comes home to face his grandfather Abe’s secrets and legacy.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
Having defeated the monstrous threat that nearly destroyed the peculiar world, Jacob Portman is back where his story began, in Florida. Except now Miss Peregrine, Emma, and their peculiar friends are with him, and doing their best to blend in. But carefree days of beach visits and normalling lessons are soon interrupted by a discovery—a subterranean bunker that belonged to Jacob’s grandfather, Abe.
Clues to Abe’s double-life as a peculiar operative start to emerge, secrets long hidden in plain sight. And Jacob begins to learn about the dangerous legacy he has inherited—truths that were part of him long before he walked into Miss Peregrine’s time loop.
Now, the stakes are higher than ever as Jacob and his friends are thrust into the untamed landscape of American peculiardom—a world with few ymbrynes, or rules—that none of them understand. New wonders, and dangers, await in this brilliant next chapter for Miss Peregrine’s peculiar children. Their story is again fully illustrated by haunting vintage photographs, but with a striking addition for this all-new, multi-era American adventure—full color.
