Yesterday I had the pleasure of joining other media professionals, booksellers, bloggers, librarians and publishing professionals from Houghton Mifflin Harcourt to celebrate the release of author Jasper Fforde's first YA release, The Last Dragonslayer. Set in the magical land of Kazam, the story follows 15-year-old Jennifer Strange, who runs an employment agency for magicians. But magic is becoming scarce, which means bad business for Jennifer. And when she discovers the world's last dragon is destined to die, Jennifer must do whatever she can to save it — or it means big changes for Kazam.
Attendees had the pleasure of enjoying a lovely, intimate lunch in Manhattan with the charming author, who shared his thoughts about YA, his next release in the Chronicles of Kazam series, some film adaptation news, as well as what he thinks about Fifty Shades of Grey.
