GR Reads pick takes you on a fantasy road trip

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) GR Reads is a summer program by the Grand Rapids Public Library that focuses on books that feature adventures big and small. “Helen & Troy’s Epic Road Quest” by A. Lee Martinez is a fantasy book that involves a road trip across an enchanted America. If the curse placed upon Helen and Troy by an ancient god doesn’t kill them, or a pack of reluctant orc assassins doesn’t catch up to them, the pair may reach the end of their journey in one piece.

The author, A. Lee Martinez, will be in Grand Rapids on Saturday, August 2, to discuss the book, why he writes fantasy novels, and how that particular genre is growing. His talk starts at 2 p.m. at the Main Library in Grand Rapids. A book signing will follow.
