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?
