Signe is thrilled to revisit Malaprops, Asheville's most fabulous independent bookstore, for a reading and signing of The Lost Queen. Malaprop’s Bookstore/Café is an independent bookstore founded in Asheville, NC in 1982. They bring books, writers, and readers together in an environment that nurtures community and the joy of reading. They carry a carefully curated selection of books for adults, children, and young adults, as well as a large array of gift items. Their cozy café offers tasty treats from local bakeries and coffee roasted locally. Writer Ann Patchett, in an article for the New York Times, wrote: “Malaprop’s was the heart and soul of Asheville, NC, when Asheville was a sleepy little hippie town, and it’s still its heart and soul now…, a position Malaprop’s maintained by being unabashedly true to itself.”
Join Signe for a reading and signing of The Lost Queen at one of Greenville, SC's most innovative book stores.

"Found Things from Lost Lands" Book Signing + Art Exhibit
3:00 PM - 6:00 PM
A reading, signing and art event to celebrate The Lost Queen in the Portland gallery that is home to the original artwork of fantasy greats Brian, Wendy & Toby Froud.
Free and open to the public. Books will be available for purchase.
The Fernie Brae invites you to submit your art for our upcoming exhibit: "Found Things From Lost Lands" to celebrate Signe Pike's release of her historical novel The Lost Queen.
Submission Call From Bryonie, Owner, The Fernie Brae:
Sometimes Things need to be kept secret. Sometimes Words must only be whispered in the shadows of the ancient oak hallows. Sometimes Magic needs to be locked away, buried deep in the Land to ensure its truths cannot be twisted into alluring guiles.
And sometimes, a Key is fashioned; a Key that unlocks, that illuminates, that leads us to find that Land and remember that Magic once more.
And sometimes, when the Land is ready, a Key is Unearthed, and Things once Lost may be Found again.
And sometimes, the Land is ready Now.
We are looking for metaphorical “Keys”: Art made by you, fashioned in any medium, that Unlocks the Memory of a something Lost that we need to Remember Now.
Questions you may ask yourself when considering what to create/submit:
“What do we need to remember?”
“What needs to be unlocked?”
“What is ready to be seen, to be known Now that we were not ready for until this moment in time?”
