Meet children's author McKenzie Wagner

The Magic Meadow and the Golden Locket



When Anna Cradle moves from Virginia to California, she steps into a real-life adventure that is the stuff of fairy tales! When Anna finds a beautiful, rainbow-colored wall right in her own backyard, she climbs it with a little red ladder, and what she finds nobody could have guessed! The craziest and most fun part is—only she can see the world that is laid out before her. Join Anna in the first two colorful adventures of The Magic Wall Series as she journeys toward The Magic Meadow and the Golden Locket and Blue Lagoon and the Magic Coin to help her new fairy friends save Magic World!

February 18 @ 2:00  PM Shannon Hale: Orem Barnes and Noble

Midnight in AustenlandAuthor Shannon Hale will be signing for her new release  Midnight in Austenland.



When Charlotte Kinder treats herself to a two-week vacation at Austenland, she happily leaves behind her ex-husband and his delightful new wife, her ever-grateful children, and all the rest of her real life in America. She dons a bonnet and stays at a country manor house that provides an immersive Austen experience, complete with gentleman actors who cater to the guests' Austen fantasies.
Everyone at Pembrook Park is playing a role, but increasingly, Charlotte isn't sure where roles end and reality begins. And as the parlor games turn a little bit menacing, she finds she needs more than a good corset to keep herself safe. Is the brooding Mr. Mallery as sinister as he seems? What is Miss Gardenside's mysterious ailment? Was that an actual dead body in the secret attic room? And-perhaps of the most lasting importance-could the stirrings in Charlotte's heart be a sign of real-life love?
The follow-up to reader favorite Austenland provides the same perfectly plotted pleasures, with a feisty new heroine, plenty of fresh and frightening twists, and the possibility of a romance that might just go beyond the proper bounds of Austen's world. How could it not turn out right in the end?

I wish I lived closer to Utah to go to that author event!

Both of these books look great. I think the Magic Meadow sounds like a cute series. Who doesn't love rainbows?

Midnight in Austenland sounds fabulous. I love the review! Thanks for sharing!
