Description:
 Do you love Vampire stories? Are you a writer? Join us at the library in welcoming local author K.A. DaVur. Her debut novel is “Hunter the Horrible”. At this family friendly event, she will discuss writing, and how this book helped her come to terms with her son’s autism. She will also read an excerpt from her new book, and sign your copy (available at the event)! There will also be a costume contest for kids 14 and under, and the winner will receive a copy of the book. Here’s a sneak peek: “I think there’s something wrong with Miss Hunter.” With that sentence six children are inducted into a mysterious organization that has been covertly fighting the undead for centuries. Of course, they don’t know that. All they know is that their creepy new teacher, the one who falls asleep in class, trips kids with her staff, and always smells a little like very old dirt, needs to go. However, when a note is passed around the room, signed only by the mysterious StakesandStones,” she and her classmates set out to prove the truth: that Miss Hunter is not just cold-hearted, but cold-blooded. Hilarious mishaps about as Jack O’Helsing, Clara Summers, Tony Brooks-Rizzoni, Peyton Edwards, and Mackenzie Selene each take a turn to prove their theory but end up only in detention. With his friends grounded for life it’s up to video game junkie Matt Kau, the class brain who knows everything except why he can’t seem to make friends, to come to the rescue. On Halloween, lit by a harvest moon, one of their plans actually goes right and the Horrible Miss Hunter is left suspended in a net eight feet above the ground. That, unfortunately, is when the real vampires attack. Can six scared kids, one trained warrior of a teacher, and two surprising allies come together in time to save the town, and their necks?
