Saturday at the NYPL

Come One, Come All!

To the New York Public Library's Literary Cafe.

Sat, May 2, 2 pm
NYPL Literary Cafe: New York City in Fantasy
42nd St Library, NYC.
It's in the new Children's Library, entrance through the door on 42nd St.

YA authors talk about writing fantasy set in New York City.

Not sure who will be there, other than Katherine Marsh (and me, of course)--I can't find a link to this specific event on the NYPL site. Since Magic Mirror is not yet published, it won't be available in the book shop. But Changeling will be. And there are Postcards!

More NYPL info

I should have waited a day to post this, since the NYPL just sent this out on their newsletter:

The new Children’s Center at 42 nd Street is pleased to announce our May event

@ 2:00 PM

Lurking in the darkest corners of New York are secrets you've never thought to discover. Imagine fairies in Central Park , ghosts whizzing through Grand Central Station, and a team of delinquent girl scouts discovering another world beneath our very feet. Three of the brightest stars in middle grade fantasy and fiction join us to discuss their three very different but equally enthralling stories of the New York that you never knew existed. Katherine Marsh is the author of The Night Tourist, a scintillating tale of the ghosts that haunt the metropolitan area, and its recent sequel The Twilight Prisoner. Kirsten Miller has penned Kiki Strike, a series in which girl spies team up to defeat evil and uncover the secrets all around us. Finally, Delia Sherman's book Changeling takes the city and turns it on its head, showing us the fairies, vampires, and mermaids we always knew were hiding somewhere. Her sequel The Magic Mirror of the Mermaid Queen is due out in June. A rare Viele map from the New York Public Library's Map Division will be on display along with this amazing trio.

The Children’s Literary Café is a monthly gathering of adults who are fans of children’s literature. Professionals, librarians, authors, illustrators, publishers, booksellers, teachers, and anyone else interested in the field are welcome to attend our meetings. The Literary Café provides free Advanced Readers galleys, a rotating series of talks with professionals in the field, and great conversation. This program is for adults only.
