Barry Yourgrau and Kelly Link team up for a literary event in Cambridge, Mass., on Monday, October 24th. So, if the crisp fall airs puts you in the mood for some pre-Halloweenish fun, head over to Porter Square Books at 7. Yourgrau and Link will be reading from their latest books, NASTYbook and Magic for Beginners, respectively. Motoyuki Shibata will also read a few of Yourgrau's and Link's stories in Japanese. The University of Tokyo professor is the Japanese translator for the two writers and many others.
That's it for the week, y'all. See you in a few days! Do take a look at the Chicken Spaghetti blog roll of Kid-Lit folks, who are listed on the right, underneath the monthly archives.
