Mightier Than the Sword with Alana Harrison and Drew Callander Fri., Aug. 10, 5 pm

Join us Fri., Aug. 10, 5 pm as comedy writers Alana Harrison and Drew Callander will be here for an interactive children’s story event with their book Mightier Than the Sword (Penguin Workshop, hb, 320 pp., $13.99).

Wildly funny and inventive, Mightier Than the Sword pulls you, the reader, into the action. Yes, YOU! You wake up in the fictional land of Astorya, where stories from our world come to life. You’re a real human being (we assume), and in this fictional world, that makes you a superhero. Armed with your trusty pencil you have the power to create: what you write, draw, or scribble in the book becomes part of the story! Only you can rescue Prince S. from the evil Queen Rulette. Aided by the Couriers–a French stoat with dangerous dance moves, a giant dung beetle, a fire ninja, a Pegasus-centaur-cowgirl and a super-intelligent femalien chameleon–you must write, draw, and puzzle your way through a hilarious adventure that is unique to every reader! And most importantly, you must prove that the pencil is mightier than the sword.

Alana Harrison and Drew Callander have spent their lives telling stories and cracking jokes. Together they have created cartoons and short films with Jon Stewart, Conan O’Brien, John Oliver, and Kristen Schaal. Their work as writers and improv comedians has aired on Sirius XM Radio, NBC, and Comedy Central. They live with their baby daughter and exquisitely talented cat (neither of whom help with the dishes).
