Editorial Reviews

As part of its Thalia Kids’ Book Club, Symphony Space invited Jonathon Shroud to read selections of his newest fantasy book, Heroes of the Valley, and to discuss his career, creative process, and the elements of a good story. Although the series is a kid-centered spinoff of their better-known literary series, the discussion is serious and insightful. In conversation with Matthew Cody, himself an author for young readers, Stroud discusses writing about magic and demons without seeming patronizing on the subject. They lead an exciting writing exercise and members of the audience share their results. Fans of Stroud’s writing and aspiring fantasy writers young and old will find this discussion to be engrossing and revealing.

Publisher's Summary

The author of The Bartimaeus Trilogy discusses his new novel with Matthew Cody (author of the upcoming book Powerless) that follows a young shepherd on a hero's quest. Along the way, he encounters highway robbers, terrifying monsters, and the truth about the legends he grew up listening to. Co-presented with Bank Street Bookstore.
