Now fans have the chance to see #1 New York Times bestselling author Veronica Roth as she visits bookstores across the country to celebrate the release of her next full-length book.
Four: A Divergent Collection, a compilation of four short stories set in the Divergent world but told from the perspective of Tobias "Four" Eaton, will be released on 8 July from Katherine Tegen Books, an imprint of HarperCollins. Included in the Four hardcover are three exclusive scenes that give readers a 360 degree view of poignant and memorable moments in Divergent.
Roth will embark on a FOUR-City National Tour with a stop at Agnes Scott College in Atlanta, Georgia. The event will take place at Presser Hall -- 141 East College Avenue, Decatur, Georgia, 30030. Marie Lu, author of the Legend series, will join Roth at her Atlanta stop, which has a scheduled start time of 7PM.
"I'm so excited for my fans to hear from them and discover amazing new books," says Roth.
Veronica Roth was a voracious reader as a teen and is committed to inspiring young people to read. For every ticket sold for admission to Veronica Roth's FOUR-City National Tour, a brand-new, high-quality book will be donated to a child in need through First Book.
