In conversation with Carolyn Turgeon, novelist and editor of Faerie Magazine

Carolyn Turgeon will discuss fiction and mythology, fairy tale and feminism, and the role of magic in her novels and in her lifestyle magazine, Faerie (described by the New York Times as: “a mash-up of Medieval, Renaissance and Victorian influences, with hints of Celtic and classical Greco-Roman mythology and a little neo-paganism tossed in for good measure”). Turgeon is the author of the novels RAIN VILLAGE, GODMOTHER: THE SECRET CINDERELLA STORY, MERMAID, and THE FAIREST OF THEM ALL, and a YA novel, THE NEXT FULL MOON. She is also the editor of THE FAERIE HANDBOOK and THE MERMAID HANDBOOK.
