Last week we had the honor of attending the book launch for MAGGIE STIEFVATER’s newest novel ALL THE CROOKED SAINTS. The event was held at Kepler’s Books (the best local indie) and it was a fantastic event. Maggie was in conversation with Chris Taylor from and we were all entertained by their witty banter, informative questions and a bit of music by Maggie whom decided to play a bit of the bag pipes for us. We hope you enjoy our event coverage and we have a giveaway that is sure to please any Maggie Stiefvater fan.

by Maggie Stiefvater

Here is a thing everyone wants: a miracle.
Here is a thing everyone fears: what it takes to get one.

Any visitor to Bicho Raro, Colorado is likely to find a landscape of dark saints, forbidden love, scientific dreams, miracle-mad owls, estranged affections, one or two orphans, and a sky full of watchful desert stars.

At the heart of this place you will find the Soria family, who all have the ability to perform unusual miracles. And at the heart of this family are three cousins longing to change its future: Beatriz, the girl without feelings, who wants only to be free to examine her thoughts; Daniel, the Saint of Bicho Raro, who performs miracles for everyone but himself; and Joaquin, who spends his nights running a renegade radio station under the name Diablo Diablo.

They are all looking for a miracle. But the miracles of Bicho Raro are never quite what you expect.
