Authors to introduce 'Dangerous Creatures'

Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl, authors of the bestselling young adult "Beautiful Creatures" series, are introducing the first title of their spin-off series, "Dangerous Creatures."

Garcia and Stohl will be in Charleston for a pre-YALLFest book signing 5-7 p.m. May 29 at Blue Bicycle Books, 420 King St. The event will include food and drink, giveaways and live music by Dom Liberati. Author Brendan Reichs ("Virals") will moderate a discussion with Garcia and Stohl.

Tickets are free with the purchase of any "Beautiful Creatures" book. For more information, call 722-2666 or visit www.yallfest.org.

Stohl and Garcia co-founded YALLFest, a young adult book festival, with Blue Bicycle Books owner Jonathan Sanchez in 2010. Stohl still serves as the festival's programming coordinator, with the help of Garcia, as well as authors Melissa de la Cruz, Pseudonymous Bosch and Brendan Reichs.

The 2014 festival is scheduled for November.
