Author Visit: Lee Bacon & Karuna Riazi on May 23!

Brooklyn Urban Garden School celebrates literature with visits by two exciting novelists! Lee Bacon is the author of  the new novel Legendtopia: The Battle for Urth as well as the Joshua Dread series, and Karuna Riazi is the author of the debut novel The Gauntlet.

Lee & Karuna will visit BUGS on Tuesday, May 23 to read from their books, talk about their lives as writers, and take questions from students.  You can order copies of their books through Brooklyn local independent bookstore Greenlight Bookstore! The authors will sign and personalize (e.g. “For Tommy”, “Happy Birthday, Sally”, etc.) your books on the day of the presentations and you can pick them up at the end of the day. Click on the books below to order.



1) The online ordering option for author signing and school pickup is open through May 11th only! Online orders placed after May 11th cannot be picked up at the school; such orders will be treated as regular orders and can be picked up in the store or shipped.

2) At checkout, choose the options "Pick up in store" and "Pay online". This will mean you do not need to pay for shipping (books will be delivered to the school for you). Orders MUST be paid for online in order to be fulfilled.

3) At checkout, you MUST note "Bacon and Riazi - BUGS" in the Order Comments to make sure your order is processed correctly.  Please also note any personalization request (i.e. "to Mary", "Happy Birthday George", etc.)

4) Only the titles on the list below are eligible for pickup at the author visit. Orders for other titles can be processed for store pickup or shipping but cannot be picked up at the school.

5) If you have any questions, email or call (718) 246-0200 and ask for Hannah or Jen.
