Petru Popescu will present his two latest novels: "Weregirls" and "Footprints in Time" at the LA Times Festival of Books and Book Expo America in Los Angeles.
Petru Popescu's books were selling behind counter in communist Romania and, from the university professor to the barber, almost everyone bought them. He defected Romania in 1977, invited to Iowa Writers' Workshop by John Cheever. He is now a New York Times bestselling author and a well known screenwriter.
His most recent book, "Birth Of The Pack", is the first of the "Weregirls" series, an arresting young adult novel combining magical realism and girl power to create one of the most thrilling adventures of the year.
