Field of Screams: A Book Release Party with Wendy Parris

Community Event

The Book Stall is excited to host Wendy Parris on Thursday, August 3 at 6:30 pm for a book release party celebrating Field of Screams, a new pulse-pounding supernatural mystery about twelve-year-old Rebecca, who has always wanted to hunt ghosts, until she meets one! This debut middle-grade novel is “full of nail-biting scenes, mysterious atmosphere, and clever scares,” according to Lindsay Currie, author of The Girl in White. The title is perfect for kids ages 8 to 12.

The book release party is free with registration, to register, please visit our website.

More About the Book: Paranormal enthusiast Rebecca Graff isn’t happy about being dragged to Iowa to spend the summer with family she barely knows. But when she tracks a ghostly presence to an abandoned farmhouse, she starts to think the summer won’t be a total lost cause! The trouble is no one believes her. Then Rebecca finds a note stashed in a comic belonging to her late father, a note that proves the same spirit haunted him when he was twelve.

Suddenly she feels a connection to the dad she pretends not to miss, and she is determined to uncover the story behind the haunting. But the more Rebecca discovers, the scarier the ghost becomes. Soon she is in a race to piece together the puzzle and recover a family legacy before it is lost forever, and a horrible tragedy repeats itself.

Lorien Lawrence, author of the Fright Watch series, says, “Haunted barn? Creepy cat? Yes please! But Field of Screams is so much more than a ghost story. It has as much heart as it does hauntings, and by the time I turned the last page, I found myself not wanting to say goodbye to these characters.”

More About the Author: Wendy Parris grew up loving books and hoping, but failing, to see a ghost. After graduating from Northwestern University, she acted in small Chicago storefront theaters, performed improv comedy, and worked in public relations. When not thinking up spooky tales, she likes to kayak, travel, and go to movies. She lives with her family near Chicago in an old house that is probably not haunted. Field of Screams is her debut novel.
