Book Birthday Bash: Angel Thieves

Book Birthday Bash


Angel Thieves by Kathi AppeltHappy Book Birthday to ANGEL THIEVES!

Here’s a message from Kathi Appelt, author of this young adult novel: “I’d love for you to know my large cast of characters, both contemporary and historical, human and not, in a story set along the banks of the Buffalo Bayou in Houston, TX. Each one is trying to make their way in the world, trying to figure out what freedom means, and ultimately, what love means. There’s a thief, there’s an enslaved woman and her daughters, there’s a sweet believer, there’s an ocelot, and of course, there’s the bayou herself. Come along for the ride.”

We’re so happy you’re at our party for ANGEL THIEVES. Join in the fun…
