One of my favorite novels (and anime adaptations) is Howl’s Moving Castle. One of my son’s favorite series was the Chrestomanci books. The author of these is Diana Wynne Jones. When Diana passed away last year, it was like losing a dear friend, one who only brought us goodies and never asked to borrow money or hand tools. So I was very happy when I received the note below from Diana’s US publishers. Please repost and retweet this invitation to any and all authors, readers, librarians, teachers, booksellers and anyone else who loves Diana’a work:
It is hard to believe that a year has passed since we lost Diana Wynne Jones. This spring Diana’s publishers around the world will be jointly remembering this wonderful author’s life and work during an online celebration and extravaganza. The official celebration/blog tour starts on April 12 and will run for two weeks. We have set up a blog at http://dwj2012.tumblr.com/ and it is ready for submissions and for sharing. The Twitter hashtag is #dwj2012. Please join us.
