Lemony Snicket sure knows a thing or two about fear. The mysterious Daniel Handler ’92, author of A Series of Unfortunate Events, will be taking over the Huffington Post Book’s Twitter account (@HuffPostBooks) this afternoon from 3:15 PM to about 3.45 PM.
The topic of discussion will be fear. And not just because Snicket/Handler (Snicker?) is sort of a creepy guy. (He did this sort of shindig once before, and the topic was love, strange enough.) He’s releasing a new book this week called The Dark, which sounds just as weird and awesome as all his other books:
Laszlo is afraid of the dark. The dark lives in the same house as Laszlo. Mostly, though, the dark stays in the basement and doesn’t come into Lazslo’s room. But one night, it does.This is the story of how Laszlo stops being afraid of the dark. With emotional insight and poetic economy, two award-winning talents team up to conquer a universal childhood fear.
This may be your only chance to interact with the otherwise-social-media-absent Snicket. According to HuffPostBooks:
All you have to do is leave your questions about FEAR in the comments below or tweeted at us using the hashtag #AskSnicket. Mr Snicket will start tweeting his advice this Friday, April 5th.
