December Party It Up: Trickster's Celebration

Planning your own book group/get-together for this book? Here are some party ideas from author Tamora Pierce herself!

Invite: Decorate with crows and crowns.

Food: Indonesian, Thai, Vietnamese, or Chinese in a pinch; mangos, papaya, star fruit (shown)

D├ęcor: Swaths of colorful silk, posters of Indonesia

Movies: Richard Lester's Three Musketeers and Four Musketeers starring Michael York, Oliver Reed, Faye Dunaway, Christopher Lee, and Charlton Heston - Tamora said, "I swiped one of the ways I write sword fighting from these." Also watch A League of Their Own for, as Tamora put it, "women being active and themselves."

I love Starfruit! Although, when they are yellow and ripe. :~)

This looks like a fun party, rgz!

Breaking out my tiara... which makes me think of Sarah Darer Littman! (If you're lurking, hi!)
