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.”

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
