Max in the House of Spies author Adam Gidwitz is coming to Cellar Door Bookstore!

We're THRILLED to welcome Adam Gidwitz to Cellar Door Bookstore (in-person this time!!) to talk about his upcoming book, Max in the House of Spies, which is coming out on February 27th!

Sent away to London, Max Bretzfeld discovers he's been joined by two unexpected traveling companions-a dybbuk named Stein and a kobold named Berg-one on each shoulder. Max knows Berlin is becoming more and more dangerous for Jewish families, but he is determined to find a way back home, and back to his parents. He just didn't expect to return as a British spy.

Adam Gidwitz taught in Brooklyn for eight years. Now, he writes full-time—which means he writes a couple of hours a day, and lies on the couch staring at the ceiling the rest of the time. As is the case with all of his books, everything in them not only happened in the real fairy also happened to him. Really. Adam Gidwitz is the bestselling author of A Tale Dark and Grimm, In a Glass Grimmly, and The Grimm Conclusion, as well as Newbery Honored novel, The Inquisitor's Tale, and The Unicorn Rescue Society series.

Whether you're a fan of historical fiction, interested in spy stories,'re a spy yourself, DO NOT MISS THIS EVENT!
