      Ziggy, Stardust & Me Book Launch Event

      You're invited to join us for a fun-filled gathering as we celebrate the launch of James Brandon's debut Young Adult novel, ZIGGY, STARDUST & ME. The evening includes a wine reception generously donated by Strange Family Vineyards and Peju Napa Valley, with light hors d'oeuvres. A short reading and conversation with the author will be followed by a book signing. ____________________________________________________________________________________ About the book and Advance Praise for ZIGGY: Published by Penguin Random House, the story is set against the tumultuous backdrop of life in 1973, when homosexuality is still treated as a mental illness. Two boys defy all the odds and fall in love. "One of the biggest and best YA books of the summer." ~Entertainment Weekly “This YA debut set in 1973 is a love letter to self-acceptance...(a) deeply impactful book (that) presents historical attitudes and policies with a chilling accuracy.” ~Publisher’s Weekly “A stunning debut. This beautifully written novel made me sob and reminded me of first love in a way no other book has in many years. Read it. Now.” —Bill Konigsberg, award-winning author of The Music of What Happens ___________________________________________________________________________________ The event is free, but reservations are required as capacity at the gallery is limited.
