Marie Rutkoski is coming to Red Balloon Bookshop on tour for the final book in her Winner Trilogy, The Winner’s Kiss! War has begun, and Kestrel and Arin are separated by more than distance alone. The East is pitted against the West, and they are caught in between. With so much to lose, can anybody really win? Join us for a night of fun and intrigue with the author and other YA enthusiasts. Learn more about Arin and Kestrel, writing, and romance, and get your books signed, too!
