sugar-plum fairy-in-training sends him on a quest 
for “The Best Gift in the Entire World!” No spoiler 
alerts here: come by and learn what happens to Reggie 
in his adventure! 

Two shows are scheduled: one at 10 am and one at 
11:30 am. The Friends of the Gilb Museum will be

A CURSE SO DARK AND LONELY(Young Adult Fantasy) 
by Brigid Kemmerer

"Absolutely spellbinding." - Stephanie 
Garber, #1 New York Times 
bestselling author of Caraval and 
Legendary. In a lush, contemporary 
fantasy retelling of Beauty 
and the Beast, Brigid Kemmerer 
gives readers another compulsively 
readable romance perfect for 
fans of Marissa Meyer.Fall in love, 
break the curse.It once seemed so 
easy to Prince Rhen, the heir to 
Emberfall. Cursed by a powerful 
enchantress to repeat the autumn 
of his eighteenth year over and 
over, he knew he could be saved 
if a girl fell for him. But that was 
before he learned that at the end of each autumn, he would 
turn into a vicious beast hell-bent on destruction. That was 
before he destroyed his castle, his family, and every last shred 
of hope.Nothing has ever been easy for Harper. With her 
father long gone, her mother dying, and her brother barely 
holding their family together while constantly underestimating 
her because of her cerebral palsy, she learned to be tough 
enough to survive. But when she tries to save someone else on 
the streets of Washington, DC, she's instead somehow sucked 
into Rhen's cursed world.Break the curse, save the kingdom.A 
prince? A monster? A curse? Harper doesn't know where she 
is or what to believe. But as she spends time with Rhen in this 
enchanted land, she begins to understand what's at stake. And 
as Rhen realizes Harper is not just another girl to charm, his 
hope comes flooding back. But powerful forces are standing 
against Emberfall . . . and it will take more than a broken curse 
to save Harper, Rhen, and his people from utter ruin.
