A talk with author Merrie Haskell Fuller
The princess curse by Merrie Haskell — Twelve princesses suffer from a puzzling—and downright silly—curse. Ridiculous though the curse may be, whoever breaks it will win a handsome reward. Sharp-witted Reveka, an herbalist’s apprentice, has little use for princesses, with their snooty attitudes and impractical clothing. She does, however, have use for the reward money that could buy her a position as a master herbalist.
This debut tween novel is part fairy tale, part myth, and wholly original. Merrie will discuss the book and the process of getting published at the Harlan Hatcher Graduate Library, Gallery (use Diag entrance) 913 S. University Ave., Ann Arbor, MI. Public parking is available in the structure at 650 S. Forest, just south of S. University. Free and open to the public.
