Join author Margaret Peterson Haddix in welcoming fellow local author Natalie D. Richards to celebrate her debut middle grade novel, 15 SECRETS TO SURVIVAL. The whole family is welcome!

Join author Margaret Peterson Haddix, New York Times bestselling author of more than 40 books for kids and teens in welcoming fellow New York Times Bestselling author Natalie D. Richards to celebrate her debut middle grade novel, 15 SECRETS TO SURVIVAL. Natalie is known for her pulse-pounding YA thrillers like FIVE TOTAL STRANGERS and is delighted to introduce younger readers to her new adventure mystery. 15 SECRETS is about a group of four classmates forced to navigate the wilderness for an extra credit project with nothing but the pages of a survival handbook—and each other—to save them. Margaret Peterson’s Haddix’s latest novel is THE GHOSTLY PHOTOS, the second in the Mysteries of Trash and Treasure series. At the event, Natalie and Margaret will read an excerpt from their books, chat about writing, answer your questions, and be available for book signings. The whole family is welcome! Gramercy will be on hand to sell books.

New York Times Bestselling Author Natalie D. Richards is the author of nine “page-turning thrillers'' (School Library Journal), including Five Total Strangers (2020) and Seven Dirty Secrets (2021).  Four Found Dead (2023) is her ninth bone-chilling novel. Her first middle-grade novel is called 15 Secrets to Survival and is due out November 7, 2023. A champion of literacy and aspiring authors, Richards is a frequent speaker at schools, libraries, and writing groups. She lives in Ohio with her three children and (very) large dog, Wookiee.   

Margaret Peterson Haddix has written more than 50 books for kids and teens, including Running Out of Time; Double Identity; Uprising; The Always War; the Greystone Secrets series; the Shadow Children series; the Missing series; the Children of Exile series; the Under Their Skin duology; and The Palace Chronicles. She also wrote Into the Gauntlet, the tenth book in the 39 Clues series.  Her books have been honored with New York Times bestseller status, the International Reading Association’s Children’s Book Award; American Library Association Best Book and Quick Pick for Reluctant Young Adult Readers notations; and numerous state reader’s choice awards. They have also been translated into more than twenty different languages. Haddix and her husband, Doug, now live in Columbus, Ohio. They are the parents of two grown kids.

About the branch

Bexley Public Library was founded in 1924 and first housed in Bexley High School, now Montrose Elementary School. The present building opened in 1929 and was designed by architects O.C. Miller and R.R. Reeves who drew upon French and Italian architecture from the 17th century for the design.

The library is located at 2411 East Main Street, at the intersection of East Main Street and Cassady Avenue. Parking is available in our parking lot on Euclaire Avenue and in front of the library on Main Street. Main Street is a No Parking Tow Zone from 4:00-6:00 p.m. weekdays.
