Early warning: WITCH WEEK IS COMING

My co-conspirator (Calmgrove at this website) is traveling, but I’m certain he’ll be posting similar information as soon as he returns.

WITCH WEEK. This is a yearly event named after the third book in Diana Wynn Jones’ Chrestomanci series. The week runs 30 October – 6 November, so it includes two great holidays: Halloween AND Guy Fawkes’ Day.

Remember, remember!
The fifth of November,
The Gunpowder treason and plot;
I know of no reason
Why the Gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot!

This year, our theme is Feminism + Fantasy, so our read-along book will be Ursula K Le Guin’s The Other Wind, the final book in the Earthsea series. You have plenty of time to get a copy and read it (perhaps the rest of the series as well) before 30 October. Then join the conversation as we discuss what happens when Le Guin throws a feminist dynamic into the fantastic world of Earthsea.

We’ll have guest bloggers, including this event’s originator and previous host, Lory at Emerald City Book Review.

More to come as we get closer to WITCH WEEK.
