Brooklyn Book Festival

It’s just been confirmed that me and Scott and the fabulous and witty Maureen Johnson will be doing the following event at the brand new Brooklyn Book Festival on Saturday the 16th of September:

    YOUTH PAVILION 2:00—3:00 p.m.
    The World Beyond: Award Winning Sci-Fi and Fantasy for Teens.

    Readings by three of the most accomplished young adult authors of 2006: Scott Westerfeld (Uglies/Pretties), Justine Larbalestier (Magic Lessons) and Maureen Johnson (Devilish). Q&A to follow.

I’m dead excited. Not only am I reading (or gossiping, or revealing all the dread secrets of young adult publishing, or whatever the three of us decide to do) with two of the best writers in the biz, but it’s in Brooklyn where I used to live. Lovely, blessed Brooklyn. Oh, how fondly I think of Sahadi’s, and the Waterfront Tavern, and all the cool little shops on State St, not to mention BAM, and, well, why did I ever leave Brooklyn?

    I would think that you left Brooklyn because here in Sydney it is a gorgeous cloudless 24C on the first day of Spring.

    Cecelia: Thanks!

    Karen: I only meant within NYC. It’s not a Brooklyn vs Sydney thing. It’s a Manhattan vs Brooklyn thing. Sydney beats either Manhattan or Brooklyn.
