Zombies are everywhere—lurching into hit movies, populating bestselling books, and invading schools across the country through the popular game Zombie Tag. Debut Saline author Carrie Harris will bring zombie fever to the Manchester District Library on April 10, 2011 from 2 to 3 PM, with a reception to follow.
In this program, Carrie will discuss survival strategies for the zombocalypse, explain the science of the undead, and give attendees an inside look at recent and upcoming zombie book releases with a focus on literature for teens.
Carrie is an expert on all things brain-related; she used to work at a lab in which human brains really did sit in jars on the counters. It only seemed natural for her to write a zombie book—BAD TASTE IN BOYS, which will hit the shelves in July from the Random House teen imprint, Delacorte Press. A sequel will be published in 2012, with a third book to follow the next year. She is also the president of the Class of 2k11, a group of debut authors for middle grade and teen readers.
The library is thrilled to be hosting Carrie! This event is open to the public, with no admission fee or pre-registration required. For more information about Carrie visit her web site at http://www.carrieharrisbooks.com/.
