A Celebration of Literature for Children and Young Adults
Calgary Convention Centre ~ October 3-5, 1996 ~ Calgary, Alberta
It is Avi's belief that "the way" a story is told is part of the story itself. The result has been books that are very different from each other. Who is that Masked Man Anyway? is written entirely in dialogue and City of Light, City of Dark is a full length comic book. The True Confessions of Charlotte Doyle is written in the tradition of a romantic sea story and Poppy is an animal tale. For each of the different stories it was important that the style and content work together. We can look forward to a new title in 1996, Beyond the Western Sea, a full length novel for young people in a two‚volume story set in nineteenth century Ireland.
