Veronica Roth event

A Room of One's Own and the Wisconsin Book Festival are thrilled to welcome Veronica Roth, author of Chosen Ones!

About Chosen Ones: Fifteen years ago, five ordinary teenagers were singled out by a prophecy to take down an impossibly powerful entity wreaking havoc across North America. He was known as the Dark One, and his weapon of choice—catastrophic events known as Drains—leveled cities and claimed thousands of lives. Chosen Ones, as the teens were known, gave everything they had to defeat him.
