WORD Presents James Patterson in Conversation with Meg Cabot

10/09/2018 - 6:30pm to 8:30pm


Join us at our Jersey City store ƒfor an all-ages event with James Patterson to celebrate his new series, MAX EINSTEIN! This children's series is the only one to be licensed by the Albert Einstein Archives and bear its official seal. A heroine for the modern age, Max Einstein is a brilliant, compassionate, and inspiring young girl who embodies the spirit of the Father of Relativity himself in the way she solves problems in creative, fun, and unexpected ways. The high-stakes adventure series follows Max and the world’s brightest kids as they travel the globe to solve humanity’s biggest problems with the power of science.

The ultimate thriller and adventure storyteller, James Patterson, turns his attention to a chapter book series heralded by Chelsea Clinton as a "must-read!" for those "interested in science, mysteries or courageous heroines." We're excited to welcome Meg Cabot, New York Times-bestselling author of The Princess Diaries, in conversation with James to discuss the making science fun in writing and the importance of incorporating STEM into our lives at a young age.

James Patterson will do a live meet and greet/signing immediately following his talk. Mr. Patterson will sign MAX EINSTEIN and his latest adult thriller, AMBUSH, as well as his previous novels, which will be on sale at the event. Meg Cabot will also sign her latest book, ROYAL CROWN, at the conclusion of the event as well.
