Scott Westerfeld - 'Horizon'

He's one of the most fascinating speakers we've had, as well as one of the most inventive writers in YA fantasy today.  Scott Westerfeld returns on Monday, April 17, at 7 pm with Horizon, the start of a new supernatural series for slightly younger readers.  Imagine Survivor on steroids.  Eight young people crash in the Arctic. But instead of an icy landscape, they find themselves in a forbidding jungle, with impossibly bizarre flora and fauna.  Survival means banding together, which may be equally impossible.  To make the danger even more lifelike, Westerfeld's creation features a multiplatform experience in which you become one of the castaways. Join the race for survival in the free game, available on your browser and as an app.  Ages 9+.   (Photo by Niki Bern)
