E. Lockhart celebrates Teen Read Week


October 18-24 is Teen Read Week!

Sponsored by YALSA, this year's theme is Read Beyond Reality @ your library, which encourages teens to read something out of this world, just for the fun of it.


Here are a few "beyond reality" musings from YA Author E. Lockhart:



Emily, what is the strangest thing you have ever seen?


I live in New York City. Yesterday, I saw a group of teenagers dressed in black corsetry waving red flags and carrying swords, giggling on the subway. Ask me again tomorrow.


Have you ever encountered a ghost? UFO? Other?

I probably have -- but I missed it. My nose was in a book.


You wish you could:


Fly. I have dreams about it all the time.


Which "Beyond Reality" character would you want to have dinner with?


Mr. Tumnus.


Where would you go? What would you eat?


We'd go to Pure Food and Wine, an all raw-food, very upscale restaurant near Grammercy Park. I think he'd like it.


What is the most "Beyond Reality" thing in your newest book?


In The Treasure Map of Boys, Nora bakes (possibly) magic cookies. If you give one to a boy, he will (possibly) do your bidding. You kind of have to wish while he is chewing. Or maybe you have to tell him what you want. Or maybe you need to eat a cookie, too. It's not entirely clear how these magic cookies work. However, they very often work. That is the point.



E. Lockhart is the author, most recently, of The Treasure Map of Boys, book three in the Ruby Oliver series. Her other books include Dramarama and The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks. www.e-lockhart.com


Thanks, Emily!
hm . . . what character would YOU have dinner with?
