Creators of the Peter Pan prequel series Starcatchers and beloved authors Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson are featured in this meeting of the Thalia Kids' Book Club. The two authors discuss how they met (at a rock band for writers), where they get their ideas, what it was like to work on the series together, and their own favorite additions to the Peter Pan story. A rousing reading from Sword of Mercy by actor Jim Dale is also included, as are questions from the audience.
The team behind the best-selling books that serve as prequels to J.M. Barrie's Peter Pan talk about the fourth installment in their Starcatchers series, with middle graders ages 9 and up. Actor Jim Dale, best known from the Harry Potter audiobooks, will perform an excerpt. The event includes a discussion with the audience.
