An Evening with Carlie Sorosiak

Join YA writer Carlie Sorosiak at Main Street Books for a reading and signing of her debut book, If Birds Fly Back

If Birds Fly Back introduces readers to Linny and Sebastian. Linny has been fascinated by disappearances, ever since her sister Grace ran away in the middle of the night without saying goodbye, while Sebastian can tell you how many galaxies there are and knows how much plutonium weighs. But the one thing he can’t figure out is the identity of his birth father.

Although they’ve never met, Linny and Sebastian have one thing in common: an obsession with famous novelist and filmmaker Alvaro Herrera, who went missing three years ago and has just reappeared. As they learn more about the mystery of Alvaro, Linny and Sebastian uncover the answers they’ve been searching for.

With humor and heart, debut author Carlie Sorosiak weaves a story of finding people who leave and loving those who stay, perfect for fans of Jandy Nelson and Emery Lord.

“Sorosiak’s debut tells a sweet love story with plenty of emotional heft...Fans of brainy romance will likely like this one.”—Booklist
