Harry and Twilight, Together Tomorrow at NYPL
July 31, 2009, 10:33 PM
Tomorrow, at the New York Public Library on 42nd Street in Manhattan, there will be a discussion between myself and the webmaster of The Twilight Lexicon on Harry Potter, Twilight, and all things inbetween. It's going to be a lot of fun so if you're in the area (and over 18, as per Children's Lit Cafe organization's rules), come check it out:

Very sorry for the late notice, and I hope to see you there!
I don’t really even believe that the two series are in the same league… Just like Michael Scott’s “The Alchemist” series, which, in my opinion, is just a spring from Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s stone; i.e. feeding off the after shock of the end of the Potter series. Now, if you want to read something truely magical and worth the time, one might wish to look into the works of Garth Nix… his “The Old Kingdom” series is quite popular, but a 7-part series that is just about to finish, “The Keys to the Kingdom”, is incredibly original.
