Fans of the TV show "Bones" can meet the creator and her son, Kathy and Brendan Reichs, who are on a book tour bringing them to the western suburbs in support of their latest title for young adult readers.
The duo will visit Anderson's Bookshop at 7 p.m. Thursday, March 14, 123 W. Jefferson Ave., Naperville. The sister shop is in Downers Grove.
"Code" is book three in the New York Times best-selling "Virals" series from Kathy Reichs and her son and writing partner. Described as a heart-pounding new book, the story puts the "Virals" to the ultimate test when they find a hidden geocache containing an ornate puzzle box — and the clock is ticking.
A spin-off of "Bones," Reichs' popular adult forensic thriller series, "Code" follows Tory Brennan, the niece of "Bones" heroine Temperance Brennan, and her gang of teenage "Sci-philes" — kids who use science to solve crimes.
The book is intended for ages 10 and older.
