Larissa Theule's Fat and Bones and Other Stories grabbed a star from Publisher's Weekly who said "an unsettling atmosphere that feels like Charlotte’s Web by way of Neil Gaiman."  Where's Papa going with that ax? He's going to a bookstore-  on October 1!!

Mikki Knudsen's Evil Librarian and Jandy Nelson's I'll Give You The Sun are featured as Best Books of September by Omnivoracious, the Amazon book blog. We give that a big YAHOO!

Speaking of Jandy- you can check out a fantastic review of I'll Give You The Sun in Entertainment Weekly here. It's a great review (a blazing, prismatic explosion of color!!) but just as fabulous to see this stellar book introduced to a mainstream audience outside the usual YA suspects. More kudos, Jandy!

Last weekend you could find Jandy, Varian Johnson and Debbie Wiles speaking at the Decatur Book Festival outside Atlanta. Any other VCFA'ers? And on September 21 Bethany Hegedus, Coe Booth and Jill Santopolo will be at the Brooklyn Book Festival. If your in the neighborhood be sure to check them out!

And last but not least-- that Moose is at it again. Kelly Bingham's fun, funny and very smart Circle Square Moose was featured in Publishers Weekly with a great story about illustrator Paul O. Zelinsky's Moose fabric shirts. I hope he sent you one too, Kelly.

Yay, VCFA!
