Chicago-based Young Adult Author James Kennedy will read at The Parlor

Tuesday, October 6, at 7pm

James Kennedy is the author of The Order of Odd-Fish (Random House Delacorte Press), a fantastical young adult comedy that was one of the Smithsonian’s Notable Books for Children in 2008. Booklist praised Odd-Fish as “hilarious . . . readers with a finely tuned sense of the absurd are going to adore the Technicolor ride” and Time Out Chicago described it as “a work of mischievous imagination and outrageous invention.”

James lives with his wife and daughter in Chicago. You can follow his activities at http://www.jameskennedy.com.

Following his 30 minute reading, James will take questions from the audience.

As always, the event will be recorded and published on-line for your repeated listening pleasure on iTunes and at www.theparlorreads.com

All readings take place at 1511 N. Milwaukee Ave, 2nd Floor

    James Kennedy here. Just a couple details about the event — I’ll be reading selections from my work-in-progress, the sci-fi comedy “The Magnificent Moots,” due to be published by Random House Delacorte Press in 2011.

    It’s like a combination of “The Hitch-hiker’s Guide to the Galaxy,” “A Wrinkle In Time,” Orson Scott Card’s “Ender’s Game,” “The Royal Tennenbaums,” and the 1970s-1980s TV show Battle of the Network Stars.
