Tomorrow, at the National Book Festival, the final episode of The Exquisite Corpse Adventure will be revealed. A marvelous shaggy dog of a tale, this version of the old game had a bevy of famous children’s authors and illustrators writing twenty-six episodes of a story involving time travel, robots, a scary clown, intrepid young heroes (of course), language play, and a whole lot more. I’m envious of those at tomorrow’s final reveal as they don’t just get to find out what happened, but get to see and hear National Ambassador for Young People’s Literature Katherine Paterson, M.T. Anderson, Mary Brigid Barrett, Timothy Basil Ering, Linda Sue Park and James Ransome present this final episode as a live Reader’s Theater. Should be a blast!
