James Dashner fans everywhere are invited to take part in the #DASHNERDASH BINGE READ, a rereading of all four titles in the bestselling Maze Runner series, in advance of the September 27 publication of the eagerly anticipated Maze Runner prequel novel, THE FEVER CODE. When discussing the reread on social media, readers are encouraged to use the hashtag #DashnerDash to follow along in the conversation.
Readers can have their questions answered and discussed as Random House Children’s Books invites Dashner fans worldwide to participate in a discussion of one title in the series each month. The reread will kick off on May 27 with THE MAZE RUNNER
—fans can submit questions via the James Dashner Facebook page. Selected questions will then be discussed by the author and his editor, Krista Marino, in a series of live Google Hangouts during the last week of each month. The first Google Hangout with Dashner and Marino will happen the week of June 27. Specific details will be posted on the Facebook page and shared via social media.
Rereads of THE SCORCH TRIALS
begin on June 27, followed by THE DEATH CURE
on July 27, and THE KILL ORDER
on August 27. Questions can again be submitted via Facebook, and a book-club-style discussion will occur at the end of each month. The Google Hangout for THE KILL ORDER
at the end of August
will lead right into the publication of THE FEVER CODE
on September 27.
Bloggers are encouraged to take part in the binge read, and those participating will receive a number of signed Dashner books to give away.
What better way to celebrate the start of summer than by revisiting a beloved series and introducing the books to new fans? Look for the first two chapters of THE FEVER CODE, recently revealed in the paperback edition of THE RULE OF THOUGHTS
, to be discussed in the Maze Runner
Google Hangout as well. Titles are available wherever books are sold. The series has sold over 14 million copies in all formats.
