The Bookstore Plus Presents

Book Release Event with Jordyn Taylor

Saturday, November 11, 2023 from 3 – 5 pm

The Bookstore Plus is pleased to host author Jordyn Taylor for a book release event to autograph copies of her newest book The Revenge Game.

The Revenge Game is a wickedly comic feminist mystery about the dark side of a hopeless romantic’s seemingly perfect love story—for readers of Jessica Goodman and Kara Thomas.

Alyson is a romantic, and sometimes it gets her into trouble. Like last summer, she thought her co-worker was into her, when in reality he found her flirting pathetic.

Then she meets Brenton Riggs Jr., and right away she knows that their connection isn’t just in her head. When he swoops in to save her one night from a less than savory party encounter, she falls head-over-heels. Finally, someone Alyson likes who likes her back!

But when she finds out about the King’s Cup—a competition the guys at their boarding school started to see who has the most sexual prowess—she’s put on edge. Does Brenton really want to be with her, or is he just trying to win? Then Alyson and the other girls at the school start a competition of their own: The Queen’s Cup. It’s all about reclaiming their power. But as the competition heats up, Alyson’s relationship begins to fall apart—and it isn’t long before the cracks in her perfect love story start to show through.

Jordyn Taylor is the deputy digital editor at Men’s Health magazine and the award-winning author of the young adult novels The Paper Girl of Paris and Don’t Breathe a Word. She is also an adjunct professor of journalism at New York University’s Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute. Jordyn was born and raised in Toronto, Canada, and now lives in New York.

Adirondack Performing Arts Center

We are over the moon to announce that PRIDE of Ticonderoga has secured a generous $100,000 grant from the Charles R. Wood Foundation. This significant grant will aid PRIDE in purchasing and fully rehabilitating the historic Knights of Columbus building. Once renovated, PRIDE will own and operate the entire Adirondack Performing Arts Center, leasing spaces and partnering with key organizations to bring the vision to life.

The vision:
3rd floor: A dynamic performing arts center, blossoming from a collaboration between PRIDE, the Ticonderoga Festival Guild, and We Are Instrumental (WAI).

2nd floor: Dedicated space for We Are Instrumental, where they’ll nurture their student lesson program, run a musical repair shop, and house a state-of-the-art recording studio.

1st floor: The Knights of Columbus will continue their operations as the venue’s in-house caterer, simultaneously driving their influential community philanthropy and programs.

A resounding THANK YOU to Charlene Wood and the entire Charles R. Wood Foundation for their unwavering support!
