a magical night

Did you miss the “Myth & Magic” reading at Franklin Park last week? The L Magazine posted this great review:

Alexi Zentner, hailed as the inventor of a new genre called “mythical realism,” read passages from his novel Touch, which included a sad, riveting, macabre, and harrowing scene of an accident on a frozen river. Zetta Elliott read from her YA fantasy A Wish After Midnight, a pre-9/11 story that time-travels to Civil War-era Brooklyn; she read two passages set in the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, one sweet one in which a black-Latina girl gabs with an old Danish man, and another of ghostly, moonlit, time-folding strangeness. Elliott ended on a breathless cliffhanger that left the crowd scrambling for the merch table; during the break, everyone seemed to have a copy of her book tucked under their arms.

  1. Dr. Elliot. Where my I obtain a copy of Wish After Midnight? And once I get it is it possible I could mail it to you and have you autograph if for me? That would be such a thrill for me.
