Angie Thomas at Anderson's Bookshop
Join Anderson's Bookshops for a conversation, Q&A, and book signing with Angie Thomas to celebrate "On The Come Up!"

This is the highly anticipated second novel by Angie Thomas, the author of the #1 New York Times bestselling, award-winning "The Hate U Give."  After a presentation and Q&A, the film version of "The Hate U Give" will be shown in the auditorium while the author signs books in the lobby.

Your ticket includes one copy of the book and admission for one person. You will receive your book when you arrive at the event.  They will not be available for pick up before that time.  

Here's what you get with each ticket:
Admittance for one person
A copy of the new book handed to you when you arrive
A presentation with audience Q&A
The opportunity to meet the author and get a photograph
A signature and personalization in the new book (your name in the book)
A signature in up to two copies of "The Hate U Give"

Here's what you shouldn't expect:
An autograph in a copy of "On The Come Up" that you bought elsewhere

More about the book:
Sixteen-year-old Bri wants to be one of the greatest rappers of all time. Or at least win her first battle. As the daughter of an underground hip hop legend who died right before he hit big, Bri's got massive shoes to fill.

But its hard to get your come up when you're labeled a hoodlum at school, and your fridge at home is empty after your mom loses her job. So Bri pours her anger and frustration into her first song, which goes viral - for all the wrong reasons.

Bri soon finds herself at the center of a controversy, portrayed by the media as more menace than MC. But with an eviction notice staring her family down, Bri doesn't just want to make it - she has to. Even if it means becoming the very thing the public has made her out to be.  

Insightful, unflinching, and full of heart, On the Come Up is an ode to hip hop from one of the most influential literary voices of a generation. It is the story of fighting for your dreams, even as the odds are stacked against you; and about how, especially for young black people, freedom of speech isn't always free.
