Eloisa's Events Calendar:


Notes from Eloisa:
Because Eloisa is a professor and a mom (and not always in that order!), she can't do as many book signings as she would wish. The best place to find her every day is on Eloisa's Facebook page. And if you'd like Eloisa to visit your town when her next book comes out, let her publisher know by posting a comment on their Facebook page.
