Spooky season is here! And Red Balloon knows just how to get into the seasonal spirit: join us for a virtual celebration of The Second Death of Edie and Violet Bond, the thrilling debut by Amanda Glaze!
Edie and Violet Bond are twins, runaways, and powerful mediums, who find safety and freedom from their pastor father in an all-female traveling spiritualist show, but must contend with threats from their past, the spirit world—and perhaps each other. Amanda Glaze will be joined by very special guest author, Gretchen McNeil, to chat all about The Second Death of Edie and Violet Bond. There will be time for questions from the audience too, of course!
