Meet author Duke Warren Kittle at the Faulkner County Library at 2 p.m. on Aug. 2. Kittle is the author of "The Dragon Eaters," a young adult fantasy novel.

If you are looking for a fantasy novel full of witches, spells, force fields, dragons, and a bad guy who’s a wolverine, this is it.

In the world Kittle creates ... mink, wolverines, bulls, rabbits, and mice solve an intriguing mystery on the imaginary planet of Cella. The heroine is a wizard who carries her home/office in a locket around her neck. When Tina needs to be "home" and goes through the appropriate magic steps, she recreates it virtually anywhere.

Kittle will talk about his writing process, and is particularly interested in addressing the ambitions of young authors. If you are an aspiring author, young or old, this conversation is for you.

All library events are free and open to the public.
