Check out what Sarah Rees Brennan has to say about pie, Narnia, and the zombie apocalypse!
Who and what would you bring with you for the zombie apocalypse?
I’d bring a flamethrower and someone super powerful to protect me! Like Dumbledore. Anyone really powerful. It’s the zombie apocalypse—no time for messing around!
If you could spend a week in any book world, which would it be?
Absolutely not! Never. Books are about terrible things happening to people, you know. ‘Oh, I think I’ll take a vacation to Narnia… oh, whoops, THE WORLD JUST ENDED OVER THERE.’ (I’m still scarred by Narnia, could you tell?)
What is the best word (in any language) and why?
Sneachta—it’s the Irish word for ‘snow’ and it sounds exactly like your boots crunching on snow.
Who are you most excited to see at YALLFest?
The readers! Where would we be without them.
What is your favorite flavor of pie?
Darby pie! (It’s like chocolate chip cookie dough pie.) But also, raspberry apple, or maybe lemon. Uh-oh, guys, I think I’m in a pie love triangle.
