Booksmith alum, prolific tweeter, and International Treasure Sarah Maria Griffin joins us for the launch of her debut novel, Spare and Found Parts.

Spare & Found Parts tells the story of Nell, a girl with a ticking mechanical heart, living with her pet stoat and her genius scientist father in a futuristic Ireland ravaged by an epidemic and enduring a fragile recovery. Nell is lonely, ambitious, and anxious about living up to her potential—until she finds a mannequin hand while salvaging at the beach. As she begins to build herself a companion, the city, her father, and her true feelings begin to reveal themselves. A soulful steampunk-dystopian romp with undertones of Station Eleven, Gold, Fame Citrus, and, of course, Frankenstein, Spare and Found Parts will be the highlight of your fall reading list.

*Ain't no party like a Booksmith party, and ESPECIALLY when it's one of our own. Join us to launch Griffski in style!*
