Laurie Halse Anderson at the King’s English, Mar. 26

I’m getting ready to head out the door to the Provo Library for the seminar I’m teaching on writing science fiction and fantasy for children and young adults, but wanted to post this first: One of my favorite writers, who I’ve had the pleasure of meeting at the last couple of Kindling Words retreats, will be in Salt Lake City next Thursday as part of her Wintergirls tour. That’s right, Laurie Halse Anderson, also known on LJ as [ljuser]halseanderson[/ljuser].

She’ll be at one of our excellent local independents, The King’s English. If you loved Speak or Fever 1793 or Chains or any of her other excellent books, make sure to check out Wintergirls. And if you head to The King’s English to get it signed, maybe I’ll see you there:
