September 3 known to legions of fans of Ransom Riggs’s #1 bestselling Miss Peregrine series as “Loop Day.” In the story, Miss Peregrine’s home is located in a September 3, 1940 time loop.

A beloved part of the Miss Peregrine series mythology, Tales of the Peculiar, is an illustrated collection of the fairy tales that guard secrets of the peculiar world. In this deluxe volume, Ransom Riggs has crafted a brilliant collection of the original stores that reveal the origins and early history of the peculiar world, including the story of the first ymbryne. The stories have been framed with an introduction and commentary by Millard Nullings, a popular character from the series who is a ward of Miss Peregrine’s and a scholar of all things peculiar.
Please join us for this very special event with Ransom Riggs in celebration of “Loop Day” and Tales of the Peculiar.
