A NYC Event with Melina Marchetta, Gayle Forman and Me + Stuff and Things

I'm thrilled to announce that Melina Marchetta, Gayle Forman and I will be doing an event together at Books of Wonder on Tuesday, July 17, 6 PM, 18 West 18th Street, NYC. We're hard at work, planning something good. Spread the word! Gayle and Melina, who, unlike me, use twitter in the friendly manner in which it's meant to be used, have been tweeting about it -- go check it out.


Also, a note to New York Times Book Review readers: I hope you enjoy my interview this weekend. I think it's going to be online as well (possibly an expanded version online?), and I'll try to come back and update this post with that link, but I'm on the road and on vacation, so no promises.

UPDATE: here is the link to the nytbr interview (I hope).

Also! Cyrus Spencer is a dancer who specializes in animation popping and robotics. Cole Haribe's dance specialty is martial arts fusion. Brandon Mitchell's dance specialty is stepping. Add stupendous choreographer Christopher Scott and the beautiful sport of BASEBALL and you get a dance routine I love. Go to that link and watch the video "Meet the Top 20: Group Six Performance"... especially if you want to deal with Fox's crappy website. :D? OTOH if you don't want to deal with Fox's crappy website, well, I imagine a search for So You Think You Can Dance Cyrus Cole Brandon Baseball would yield less frustrating results....
