Picture Katniss Everdeen crossed with Annie Oakley– that’s Serendipity ‘Pity’ Jones. She’s the heroine the new West needs, in an imagined future. The US has been fractured by a Second Civil War. Pity Jones finds a home of sorts in the corrupt, lawless city of Cessation. Her shooting skills make her a star of the Theater Vespertine, but there’s a grim side to the Theater that Pity’s about to discover. Gunslinger Girl provides rip-roaring action for ages 14 and up. This is a free event for all ages. Lyndsay will be doing a reading and taking questions, with a book signing to follow. Event details are at
