September 12, 2018

KISSIMMEE, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep 12, 2018--Best known for “The Book Thief” and “I Am the Messenger,” Markus Zusak is headed to Kissimmee for a book signing for his most recent novel “Bridge of Clay.”Books-A-Million invites guests to join the author for a meet and greet event on Tuesday, October 16 from 7 p.m. – 8 p.m. at the store located at 2605 West Osceola Parkway in Kissimmee, Florida.

Set for release on Tuesday, October 9, Zusak’s latest novel is a breathtaking story of five brothers who bring each other up in a world run by their own rules. As the Dunbar boys love and fight and learn to reckon with the adult world, they discover the moving secret behind their father’s disappearance. The story follows Clay, the boy at the center of the Dunbar family, who will build a bridge for his family, his past, for greatness, for his sins and for a miracle. Written in powerfully inventive language and bursting with heart, “Bridge of Clay” is a Zusak classic.

“It’s different then what I’ve done before,” says Zusak while discussing his book. “I’m a completely different person than the person who wrote ‘The Book Thief.’”

Zusak is the author of five books, including the international bestseller “The Book Thief,” which has been translated into more than forty languages, establishing Zusak as one of the most successful authors to come out of Australia. Zusak has held the No. 1 position at Amazon.com, The New York Times bestseller list as well as others across South America, Europe and Asia. In addition, he won the Margaret A. Edwards Award in 2014 for his contributions to young-adult literature.
