When an internationally-acclaimed author of dystopian science fiction for young adults comes to your library, it’s not the end of the world—it’s the beginning of a great event for teen readers.

Moira Young, presents Raging Star, the concluding novel to the popular Dust Lands Trilogy, at the Nelson Public Library on Friday, July 4 at 1pm.

The first book in Young’s trilogy, Blood Red Road, won two prizes for children’s literature and has been optioned for a film. According to the Globe and Mail, “It’s Mad Max and The Hunger Games meets True Grit. . . . This is a must-read.”

About the second novel, Rebel Heart, MTV’s Hollywood Crush said: “Rebel Heart is a kick to the gut; a book that will rip your heart out, tear it to shreds, and then apologize while trying to paste it back together.”

A Canadian currently living in the UK, Young has been chalking up followers of her fiction, and so the publication of Raging Star is a much anticipated event. Raging Star, published this spring, offers the breathtaking conclusion to the desperate tale of Saba and Jack living in an increasingly dangerous world.
