Join Penguin Teen and authors Rosaria Munda (Fireborne), Tochi Onyebuchi (War Girls), and Natalie C. Parker (Steel Tide) at Red Balloon Bookshop in St. Paul for an evening of well-mannered frivolity (read: serious laughs and Serious. Geeking. Out.). There will be games! Prizes! Free swag! Plus, get the inside scoop on hot YA books coming in 2020 that you’ll want to add to your TBR list stat.

And does newcomer Rosaria Munda have what it takes to be crowned winner of Penguin Teen Game Night? You’ll have to be there to find out! The festivities start at 6:30 pm sharp; doors open at 6:00 pm.
