TUESDAY, April 1st at 7 PM: THE GIRL WHO CIRCUMNAVIGATED FAIRYLAND ... Continues!
“A glorious balancing act between modernism and the Victorian Fairy Tale, done with heart and wisdom." —Neil Gaiman, Newbery Award-winning author of The Graveyard Book
“September is a clever, fun, stronghearted addition to the ranks of bold, adventurous girls. Valente's subversive storytelling is sheer magic." —Tamora Pierce, author of The Immortals series
“A mad, toothsome romp of a fairy tale -- full of oddments, whimsy, and joy." -- Holly Black, author of Zombies vs. Unicorns and the Spiderwick Chronicles
“When I saw that this book reminds me simultaneously of E. Nesbit, James Thurber, and the late Eva Ibbotson, I don't mean to take anything awy from its astonishing originality. It's a charmer from the first page, managing the remarkable parlay of being at once ridiculously funny and surprisingly suspenseful. Catherynne Valente is a find, at any age!" -- Peter S. Beagle, author of The Last Unicorn
“[Fairyland creates] a world as bizarre and enchanting as any Wonderland or Oz and a heroine as curious, resourceful and brave as any Alice or Dorothy. Complex, rich and memorable.” -- Kirkus, Starred Review
"This book is quite simply a gold mine." -- Booklist, Starred Review
Faerie Maven-Pralou continues the adventure this week, live in voice.
