Return to Wasilika

The nearly identical twins are back.

Come help Quadra author Michael Redican, celebrate the launch of his new children’s fantasy novel, Return to Wasilika, on Saturday, October 13 from 3:00-4:00 at the Quadra Community Center.

Like the much loved Wasilika, Return to Wasilika features characters that are partially based on various Quadra kids. The cast not only includes the dragons, tyrants, giants and fairies from the first book but also an off-key wandering minstrel, a determined mouse and a swashbuckling raccoon. It is these three who team up with the finders on what should be a straightforward quest to rescue Queen Jaweesh from the ogres, but Wasilika has changed drastically. Novenka and Fontana are faced with a host of questions that must be answered before they can save Wasilika. Why are Wasilikans so miserable? What’s happened to the True Companions? Is the queen as nasty as everyone says? And where the heck are the ogres?

Intrigued? Come to the book launch.

There will be readings (and singings) of short excerpts from the book. There will be draws for free books. The order of the riddle will be revealed. Feast on free nibbles and drinks. Pick up copies of the novel, signed not only by the author, but many of the characters as well.

And remember, if you come in costume you will receive a special Wasilikan cookie baked by the author.
