Pete Hautman at Addendum!

National Book Award winner Pete Hautman joined us today at Addendum to celebrate the release of the third book in his Klaatu Diskos trilogy - The Klaatu Terminus

We were lucky enough to hear him read from a book he is working on that won't be out for two more years -  we were his first audience! 

The excerpt he read was really funny, and we can't wait to read it in its entirety!

A special thanks to all the families who came to spend Mother's Day with us at Addendum. No better way to spend the day than at a bookstore!

After the reading, Pete answered questions from his fans. 

Then he was available for signing books. 

Pete had a special deal for attendees who purchased at least one book from the trilogy today at Addendum. In his own words: 
Free Books.
That's right. I am so desperate for readers I'm GIVING away books on Mothers Day. And you don’t even have to be a mom!
Yes, there is a catch. There’s always a catch, right?
Here’s the catch. You must come to Addendum Books between 1:00 and 2:30 the afternoon of May 11. That’s THIS Sunday. Mom’s Day.
Addendum Books specializes in YA literature, and they know their stuff. The shop is in St. Paul's Cathedral Hill District, at the corner of Selby and Western, in the lower level of the Blair Arcade. It’s tucked into the back of a full size general interest bookstore. It’s a bookstore-within-a-bookstore! It’s like a Tardis, only bookier! (Addendum will be moving into a new space soon—stay tuned!)
I'll be there signing copies of the Klaatu Diskos Trilogy and I might even read a few pages.  Everybody who buys at least one of the trilogy gets a free book from my specially selected backlist of adult titles (Doohickey, Ring Game, Rag Man, or The Prop, as supplies last). Or, if you want to stick with YA, a copy of Full House, an anthology of YA poker-themed short stories that I edited.

I'm doing this because I'd love for people to discover and support Addendum Books, and because I need to make room on my bookshelves. Also, I want to get you all hooked on the Klaatu Diskos trilogy. 

A huge thank you to Pete for this very generous offer - everyone loved receiving a gift along with their purchase! 

We had a blast today! 
If you were unable to make it to the event, you can pick up signed copies of Pete's books at Addendum.
