Come join us at the SPARK Museum of Electrical Invention as we transform it into the "Cascadia Loop," circa 1925. If you are a fan of Riggs' bestselling series, you know what we mean and if you don't, aren't you intrigued? Come dressed in your best '20s-era duds to hear Ransom Riggs discuss the latest installment about Miss Peregrines peculiars.
A Map of Days: Having defeated the monstrous threat that nearly destroyed the peculiar world, Jacob Portman is back where his story began, in Florida. Except now Miss Peregrine, Emma, and his peculiar friends are with him, and doing their best to blend in. But carefree days of beach visits and normalling lessons are soon interrupted by a discovery—a subterranean bunker that belonged to Jacob’s grandfather, Abe.
Clues to Abe’s double-life as a peculiar operative start to emerge, secrets long hidden in plain sight. And Jacob begins to learn about the dangerous legacy he has inherited—truths that were part of him long before he walked into Miss Peregrine’s time loop.
Now, the stakes are higher than ever as Jacob and his friends are thrust into the untamed landscape of American peculiardom—a world with few rules—that none of them understand. All new wonders, and dangers, await in this brilliant new chapter for Miss Peregrine’s peculiar children. Their story is again fully illustrated by haunting vintage photographs, but with a striking transformation for this all-new, multi-era American adventure—full color.
