Lory at The Emerald City Book Review is starting a new yearly event -- Witch Week! The first year will focus on the inspiration for the event -- Diana Wynne Jones.
Calling all fantasy lovers! I'm excited to announce that from October 31 to November 6 I'll be hosting Witch Week, a chance to read and discuss our favorite books and authors, and discover some that may be new to us.There will also be other DWJ books featured daily and a giveaway. I'll be guest posting about Power of Three on November 1!
This year the focus will be on the incomparable Diana Wynne Jones, author of so many fantastic books and (as far as I know) the originator of the term "Witch Week." As we learn from her novel of that name, starting on Halloween we enter a special time "when there is so much magic about in the world that all sorts of peculiar things happen," and when stories carry a particular power. What better time to celebrate and share the magic of reading?
Our "official" read-along book will be Witch Week (naturally), with a discussion on Guy Fawkes Day, November 5. Don't know what Guy Fawkes Day is? Read the book, and you'll find out!
So, head on over to Lory's blog and let her know you want to participate -- because it's six long months until the next DWJ March.
Waiting for the witching hour,
