In just a few hours, I’ll be talking with Alix Harrow for Harvard Bookstore, cooping with Seattle’s own Third Place Books (which now has a stack of signed copies specially for those who register for this event). And, oh, do we have plans for you!

Alix and I are both fascinated by the uses and abuses of retold tales, the way cliches can be both useful and dangerous. We both have Many Thoughts on subverting national fantasies—and fantasy in general—plus what works and what doesn’t, and why. Honestly, I think we could do five of these things and still have more to say, so it’ll be a jam-packed evening, fast and furious. Especially as we’ll also be gushing about each other’s work. (If you haven’t read A Spindle Splintered, you really should.)

So do please come listen to us talk about the past and present, representation and art. Bring a friend—bring two friends! Bring questions—lots of questions! I AM SERIOUS: BRING QUESTIONS! For me, part of the point of these things is to find out what you do and don’t like, what you want to know, what you don’t much care about. This is your chance to find out what you want to know. I really do like talking about my work.

Register here. It’s free.

See you soon!
