a zine project

Posts tagged ‘alex and the ironic gentleman’

it’s always good to hear from a favorite author…

I am so thrilled at the moment I having trouble typing up this post! but I so want to share that I will persevere despite the pauses.

So, a short while back it was thought that “Wouldn’t it be great to feature an author interview in the zine?” Yes–that would be great–good idea. The Who was hardly in question. How about the author of N’s favorite book (for years running and through several annual readings) Alex and the Ironic Gentleman? Adrienne Kress has a great website with all sorts of information on how to contact her…

N wrote up questions she wanted to ask Ms. Kress, like “What inspired you to write Alex and the Ironic Gentleman?” and “Which old lady from your book creeps you out the most? (For me it’s Poppy. Ugh.)”. Nice, huh?

And then she wrote up an email. It begins like this:

Hi, I’m Natalya (10 years old) and I absolutely adore Alex and the Ironic Gentleman. I have read several excellent books since I first read Alex and the Ironic Gentleman and it still remains at the top of my list. When I get to publishing (I am writing a novel currently) I hope to be as good as you!

Today, Adrienne Kress returned with a gracious reply and answer of: “sure!  I’d love to do the interview.  Can I get it back to you sometime next week?”

I am so excited!  I can’t wait ’til N finds out!

The zine was already going to be Fantastic, of course!–but what a great addition to the TalyaWren!
