Harry Potter has certainly whetted our aptitude for fantasy literature, and when a fantasy writer from Iowa comes all the way to Hyderabad to meet her little fans, it's no less than a magical moment for young readers.

Treasure House is holding the program "Meet The Author: Sarah Prineas" on 1st December, for the age-group 8-14 years. She will talk on "How Books Are Made", and will participate in a book discussion.

Sarah Prineas, who lives in Iowa, is the author of the Magic Thief series, which consists of 3 books - "TMagic Thief", "Magic Thief: Lost" and "Magic Thief: Found". Sarah holds a Ph. D in English literature, and has recently taught seminars on fantasy and science fiction literature at the University of Iowa.

Sarah's first 2 novels introduce readers to the irascible wizard Nevery and his gutterboy apprentice Connwaer, whose adventures continue in The Magic Thief: Found. It all begins with Conn picking Nevery's pocket and stealing the wizard's locus magicalicus, a stone used to focus magic and work spells. The very act should have killed Conn, but for some unexpalined reason, he survives.

Astonished and intrigued, Nevery agrees to take Conn on as his apprentice, on the condition that the boy find a locus stone of his own within a month. With his wizard lessons and attempts to help Nevery discover who ? or what ? is stealing the city of Wellmet's dwindling supply of magic, time is running out for Conn to find his stone.

The author will be available from 5:30pm to 7:30pm. Please contact 2355-0118 for further details.
