    Come party at Scrawl! Authors Kwame Alexander & Mary Rand Hess, joined by singer/songwriter/guitarist Randy Preston will be here for reading, signing, and live, original music from Solo.

    From award-winning and New York Times bestselling author Kwame Alexander, with Mary Rand Hess, Solo is a YA novel about seventeen-year-old Blade Morrison, whose life is bombarded with scathing tabloids and a father struggling with just about every addiction under the sun—including a desperate desire to make a comeback. Haunted by memories of his mother and his family’s ruin, Blade’s only hope is in the forbidden love of his girlfriend. But when he discovers a deeply protected family secret, Blade sets out on a journey across the globe that will change everything he thought to be true. With his signature intricacy, intimacy, and poetic style, Kwame Alexander explores what it means to finally come home.

    No ticket required. Pre-order to help us plan and get 2 exclusive videos and a Spotify playlist inspired by the book here. Choose the event pick-up option at check out.

    "How do we challenge people to continually be the best version of themselves? How do we reinforce that keeping up with the Joneses is an exercise in futility? How do we accentuate the notion that comparing ourselves to others will cause us to be either vain or bitter? How do we meet people where they are and offer sage counsel that will prove valuable in helping them get to where they want to be? How do we help people practice intellectual humility? How do we reach mental maturity?"

    These are just some of the questions that are  discussed by author Charles Thomas Jr. in his new book Breakthrough.  Come in for a reading and book signing along with some great discussion!
