Meeting Room C
Enjoy a range of talks from bestselling authors and thought leaders.
Join us for an action-packed online conversation with New York Times bestselling author of The Gilded Ones Series in a discussion about her second installment in the series, The Merciless Ones.
In Forna’s first New York Times Bestselling book, The Gilded Ones, readers are introduced to sixteen-year-old Deka, who lives in fear and anticipation of the blood ceremony that will determine whether she will become a member of her village. Already different from everyone else because of her unnatural intuition, Deka prays for red blood so she can finally feel like she belongs. But on the day of the ceremony, her blood runs gold, the color of impurity–and Deka knows she will face a consequence worse than death.
Books are available to check out from the Reference Desk on the second floor. Join us here at the library or pre-register here to receive a link to join the discussion from home.
