THE ART OF STARVING Book Launch (Books Sold by The Lit. Bar)

  • Parlor 286 Spring Street New York, NY, 10013 United States (map)

From the Desk of the Author, Sam Miller:

Join us on July 18th as we celebrate the release of my debut novel from HarperTeen! I'll read from the book, answer questions, sign copies.... maybe share some snacks... maybe welcome some special guests!

Rooted in my own experience as an eating disorder survivor, THE ART OF STARVING is Young Adult/Science Fiction/dark and edgy. Think: gay boy Carrie. A Junior Library Guild selection, it’s gotten starred reviews from Publisher’s Weekly, Booklist, and Kirkus, who said:

“Matt toes the line between expiration and enlightenment, sparing no detail of his twisted, antagonistic relationship with his body. [His] sarcastic, biting wit keeps readers rooting for him and hoping for his recovery. A dark and lovely tale of supernatural vengeance and self-destruction.” 

Hope to see you there!
