About this event

“Magical—Pony is pure delight.” —Newbery Medal–winning author Rebecca Stead

Twelve-year-old Silas is awoken in the dead of night by three menacing horsemen who take his father away. Silas is left shaken, scared, and alone, except for the presence of his companion, Mittenwool . . . who happens to be a ghost. When a pony shows up at his door, Silas makes the courageous decision to leave his home and embark on a perilous journey to find his father. Along the way, he will face his fears to unlock the secrets of his past and explore the unfathomable mysteries of the world around him.

R. J. Palacio spins a harrowing yet distinctly beautiful coming-of-age story about the power of love and the ties that bind us across distance and time. With the poignant depth of War Horse and the singular voice of True Grit, this is one of those rare books poised to become an instant classic for readers of all ages.

We are thrilled to present a virtual event with award-winning and beloved author RJ Palacio (you all remember Wonder). She will be introducing her newest book, Pony. It’s a truly brilliant story for all ages, about family and loyalty and counterfeiting and ghosts. We know you and your students are going to love it. For this special event RJ Palacio will be joined in conversation by Josh Radnor.

The event will take place on September 30, 2021 at 5 PM (PT). We have a limited number of tickets. To join the event, the publisher requires that each attendee buy a copy of Pony. The first 30 people to purchase tickets will receive an autographed copy of Pony. Every ticket purchaser will also also receive a gift when they pick up their book in-store.

Please give the shop a call at (925) 837-7337 if you have questions. We hope you will join us!
