V.E. Schwab will be pre-signing, speaking, and reading. Copies of the paperback edition of THE INVISIBLE LIFE OF ADDIE LARUE will be pre-signed and stamped with a tour exclusive custom image. In lieu of a post-event signing line, there will be a longer Q&A session.
About the book: Now in paperback! In the vein of The Time Traveler’s Wife and Life After Life, The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue is New York Times bestselling author V. E. Schwab’s genre-defying tour de force. In France, 1714: in a moment of desperation, a young woman makes a Faustian bargain to live forever—and is cursed to be forgotten by everyone she meets. Thus begins the extraordinary life of Addie LaRue, and a dazzling adventure that will play out across centuries and continents, across history and art, as a young woman learns how far she will go to leave her mark on the world. But everything changes when, after nearly 300 years, Addie stumbles across a young man in a hidden bookstore and he remembers her name.
