An anthology by Rick Riordan and a group of other authors will be out this September 28, 2021. The book is named The Cursed Carnival and Other Calamities. The book that is named The Cursed Carnival and Other Calamities is an anthology.
An anthology is a book of selected writings by different authors. The selected writings may be about the same subject, may have the same theme, or may be from the same time period.
However, the series of stories in this anthology are not about the same culture. The stories in this anthology are from different cultures. They are from these cultures: Indian, Mesoamerican, Korean, Cuban, Black American, African, Navajo, Mexican, Mesopotamian, and Celtic.
Below is a short summary about the anthology:
A cave monster…. an abandoned demon…. a ghost who wants to erase history…. a killer commandment…. These are just some of the challenges confronting the young heroes in this highly entertaining anthology.
This is what Rick Riordan had to say about the new anthology: “I hope you enjoy your trip through the multiverse mansion as much as I did. The real danger is that once you start exploring all the wonders herin, you may want to stay forever.”
Ten best-selling and award-winning authors contributed to this anthology. The author’s names are: Carlos Hernandez, Graci Kim, J.C. Cervantes, Rebecca Roanhorse, Sarwat Chadda, Roshani Chokshi, Tehlor Kay Mejia, Yoon Ha Lee, Kwame Mbalia, and Rick Riordan himself.
I am excited to read this anthology by these respected group of authors.
Always with infinite love,
