Stuart Gibbs, Marvelous Middle Reader Writer, is Back with Spy Ski School

Sunday, October 9th, 3:00 p.m.

Want to take a ski trip right here in Hancock Park? Then come on by Sunday afternoon and meet the remarkable Stuart Gibbs, one of Chevalier’s all-time favorite middle reader writers,  and our friend and neighbor (lucky us!) as he shares Spy Ski School, his follow-up to the hit Edgar-Award–nominated Spy SchoolSpy Camp, and Evil Spy SchoolReading, q&a, signing.

spyskiBen Ripley enrolls in ski school, where the slopes, and the stakes, get really steep.

The Mission: Become friends with Jessica Shang, the daughter of a suspected Chinese crime boss, and find out all of her father’s secrets. Jessica wants to go to ski school in the Rocky Mountains, so a select few spy school students are going skiing too—under cover, of course. Ben might not be able to handle a weapon (or a pair of skis), but he can make friends easy peasy. That is, until his best friend from home drops in on the trip and jeopardizes the entire mission…
