I heard Andy webcasting this afternoon with his students about Neil Gaiman's Coraline, a fabulous book about a young heroine who crosses into another world. Since I'm hip-deep in writing a conference paper about Dorothy Gale of Kansas, I'm also thinking about other young female world-striders, like Lyra in the
His Dark Materials trilogy by Philip Pullman. Brilliant books, those, and I'm aflutter waiting for The Golden Compass, due out in December 2007.

Speaking of traveling heroines, let us not forget that Pan's Labyrinth will at the Palace in Frostburg in February. We should try to set up a F2F meeting of FSFS.

Sounds great. I'll definitely be there for Pan's Labyrinth.
