2014 Teen Read 'n' Feed Festival: 5 questions for Barry Lyga

Posted on: Monday, April 7, 2014 at 9:00:00 am

clientuploads/blog/teens/misc/biography_pic_lyga.jpgWhy did you say yes to the Read ʽnʼ Feed Festival at APL?
Staci asked very nicely and told me there would be food -- why would I *not* say yes??? :)

What’s your favorite kind of food?
Sadly for my waistline: Junk food!

How often do you have to scrap a story because it's just not turning out the way you want it to?
Very, very rarely. I do a lot of thinking about my stories before I start writing them, so I pretty much know what they are before I get too involved.

What was one of your favorite books as a teen?
A comic book called WATCHMEN. They made a pretty decent movie out of it a few years ago, but the comic is better.

When you were a teen, what did you want to do after high school?
Exactly what I'm doing now!

The Anderson Public Library will host the Second Annual Teen Read ‘n’ Feed Festival on Saturday, April 12. Authors Barry Lyga, Kristin Levine, Saundra Mitchell, and Brenda Maxfield will speak during sessions from 11:30am to 5:00pm.

Teens in grades 6-12 are invited to attend but must register or by calling 765-641-2456.  Copies of I Hunt Killers and Archvillain by Barry Lyga, Lions of Little Rock by Kristin Levine, and The Vespertine by Saundra Mitchell are being distributed at school visits and at the Information Services desk while supplies last. Kids Ink Children’s Bookstore from Indianapolis will also be selling books at the Festival. Lunch will be provided to teens only thanks to a donation from Pizza Hut.  The Read ‘n’ Feed Festival is also made possible by funding through a grant given to the Anderson Public Library by the Madison County Community Foundation and the Friends of Anderson Public Library.
