Ya’ll Fest

Robin Wasserman will use the zombie apocalypse as a time to enrich herself and enriches us with an awesome favorite word that you should definitely look up. 

Who and what would you bring with you for the zombie apocalypse?

I’d gather up all the slowest people I know (the better to outrun them when the zombies are chasing us and get away while the zombies are chowing down on their brains). I probably would *not* gather up any weapons, since I wouldn’t know where to find them and or how to keep from aiming them at myself. Instead, there’d be a lot of books, a lot of boxes of Cheerios and Tastykakes, and the guitar I stash under my bed because I’ve never gotten around to learning to play. Seems like, come the apocalypse, I might suddenly find myself with a lot of free time.

If you could spend a week in any book world, which would it be?

Harry Potter, if I got to be a wizard and go to Hogwarts. If I had to be a muggle, though, I’d rather end up in *A Wrinkle in Time*, because I wouldn’t mind tesseracting around the universe for a while.

What is the best word (in any language) and why?

Defenestrate. For reasons that should be obvious.

Who are you most excited to see at YALLFest?

John Corey Whaley, because WHERE THINGS COME BACK took my breath away, and I’d like the chance to tell him so.

What is your favorite flavor of pie?
