Busy Weekend

Had a great time hosting and MC-ing the Mad Hatter Tea Party with John Palminteri. Such a fun day. Had a great time, and will totally do it again. NOW it's on to the next thing tomorrow Sunday. Reading Lamb to the Slaughter by Roald Dahl for the next Speaking of Stories event "Twisty Tales." The show performs Sunday 4/18 @ 2PM and Monday 4/19  @ 8PM You can learn more about it here: http://www.speakingofstories.org/

And here's some info on the author:
Roald Dahl, a writer of both children's fiction and short stories for adults, is best known as the author of the 1964 children's book Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (he also wrote the script for the 1971 movie version). Dahl has been described as a master of story construction with a remarkable ability to weave a tale. In 1943 Dahl wrote his first children's story, The Gremlins, and invented a new term in the process. Gremlins were small creatures that lived on fighter planes and bombers and were responsible for all crashes. Through the 1940s and into the 1950s Dahl continued as a short story writer for adults, establishing his reputation as a writer of deathly tales with unexpected twists. His stories earned him three Edgar Allan Poe Awards from the Mystery Writers of America. In 1953 Dahl married Hollywood actress Patricia Neal. Although the marriage did not survive, it produced five children. As soon as the children were old enough, Dahl began making up stories for them each night before they went to bed. These stories became the basis for his career as a children's writer, which began seriously with the publication of James and the Giant Peach in 1961.
