tricks and treats

Next weekend, I'll be in New England. By the time I fly home, my book will in stores (gulp). If you get a chance to cruise through Northampton Massachusetts, swing by the Clarion hotel and you'll catch my cousin's interactive Halloween show. Jon builds his giant puppets by hand. They invite the audience to participate in the story by collecting clues, answering riddles, and picking one of two different endings. It's like jumping into your favorite choose-your-own adventure book!
