Before he wrote stories, Denver young adult author Chris Howard wrote songs, studied natural resources management, and led wilderness adventure trips for teenagers. Howard reads from and discusses his debut novel for young readers Rootless. In this dazzling debut, Howard presents a disturbing world with uncanny similarities to our own. Like the forests his main character, Banyan, seeks to rebuild, this visionary novel is both beautiful and haunting. “There’s a brilliant madness to this deadly post-apocalyptic world, filled with complex characters, shifting loyalties, and layers of mystery… it’s also a nonstop adventure, with wild concepts and an almost hypnotic quality to Banyan’s terse, weather-beaten narration.” – Publishers Weekly, starred reveiw

($17.99) Scholastic ISBN # 9780545387897. You can visit Chris Howard’s official web site as well.
