Teen author and Hicklebee's own Parker Peevyhouse is launching her new book The Echo Room and bringing its own unique challenge to our store...
Between 4:00pm and 6:00pm, stop in at any time during this window to try our "escape the room" game! Teens, adults, and ambitious kids can follow the clues to find a secret code to "escape" from our store. This self-directed puzzle-game takes about 30 minutes to complete and reveals secret non-spoiler information about The Echo Room. Everyone who solves the game and "escapes" the store will be entered into our raffle--the winner will receive a prize pack at the end of the evening.
At 7:00pm, Peevyhouse will talk aboutThe Echo Room, in conversation with Traci Chee, author of The Sea of Ink and Gold trilogy, with a signing to follow. You won't want to miss this one!
Parker Peevyhouse is likely trying to solve a puzzle at this very moment, probably while enjoying In-N-Out fries, admiring redwood trees, and quoting movies about sentient robots. Parker's critically acclaimed collection of novellas for young adults, Where Futures End, was named a best book for teens by the New York Public Library, Chicago Public Library, and Bank Street. The Horn Book called it “a smart science-fiction puzzle.” Parker lives in the San Francisco Bay Area.
