I know it’s only the beginning of September, but I can’t wait to tell everybody about what’s in store for the third annual Witch Week, which will take place from October 31 to November 6. It’s a chance to celebrate our favorite fantasy books and authors, and I have so much fun each year putting it together.
This year, to tie in with my year-long Reading New England challenge, I chose the theme “Made in America” to focus on fantasy works based in the USA. There will be an interview with New Hampshire author Kat Howard, a top ten list, thoughts about the Oz books, a consideration of Neil Gaiman’s iconic American Gods, a giveaway, and more!
Readers are especially invited to join in the readalong of Something Wicked This Way Comes by Ray Bradbury. I’ve never read this spooky classic set in a midwestern town, so I’m excited to jump into it in company with others. Get your copy ready and watch for the discussion post on November 5.
Bloggers are also invited to plan their own posts to share on the linkup during the week. (Books do not need to be about witches. Anything vaguely fantasy-related is welcome.)
Finally, I’d like to thank the fabulous bloggers who have agreed to help me with this year’s celebration:
- Maureen of By Singing Light
- Jenny of Reading the End
- Kristen of We Be Reading
- Susie of Girl With Her Head in a Book
- Chris of Calmgrove
- Brian of Babbling Books
- Deb of The Book Stop
I’m so looking forward to their contributions, and to yours. Please join us.
