‘The Book Thief’ author coming to Mission Viejo this fall

Markus Zusak

Save the date for October 26 when Markus Zusak, the New York Times bestselling author of “The Book Thief,” makes a special Mission Viejo appearance. 

Zusak, who hails from Australia, will discuss his much-anticipated novel “The Bridge of Clay” at 7 p.m. at the Norman Murray Community Center.

This unforgettable and sweeping family saga is about five brothers who bring each other up in a world run by their own rules. As the Dunbar boys love, fight and learn to reckon with the adult world, they discover the moving secret behind their father’s disappearance. At the center of the Dunbar family is Clay, a boy who will build a bridge—for his family and a miracle.

Written in powerfully inventive language and bursting with heart, “Bridge of Clay” is signature Zusak.  The $29.50 ticket price includes one hard copy book, admission for you and a guest and signing in the order of online purchase at https://markuszusak.brownpapertickets.com.  Seats are limited. Don’t miss this rare opportunity to meet Markus Zusak in person!

This Writers Present program is sponsored by the Friends of the Mission Viejo Library and Whale of a Tale Bookshoppe.
