I’m so excited to be part of the Boston Book Festival this year. I’ll be on the panel Middle Grade: Reimagination with Karuna Riazi (The Gauntlet) and Kekla Magoon (Robyn Hoodlum: Reign of Outlaws).
It’s fun to make up stories out of thin air, but it can be even more fun to start with an existing story and ask yourself “what if thishappened instead?” That may be how the three authors in this session started their latest books—but then they let their own imaginations run wild! Elizabeth Eulberg, in The Great Shelby Holmes Meets Her Match, imagines what might happen if Sherlock Holmes was a nine-year-old girl solving mysteries in her Harlem neighborhood. Debut novelist Karuna Riazi, in The Gauntlet, takes her Bangladeshi American heroine on a magical steampunk board game adventure inspired by Jumanji. And in Kekla Magoon’s latest Robyn Hoodlum adventure, Reign of Outlaws, a merry band of outlaws—led by a girl named Robyn—rebels against social injustice in a futuristic society. What story would you reimagine—why and how? Bring your ideas to this session, hosted by Elissa Gershowitz, executive editor of the Horn Book.
