Publishers Weekly: BEA 2012: A Bountiful Breakfast Menu

Those attending this morning’s Children’s Book and Author Breakfast will get their fill of entertaining fare. After an opening welcome from Walter Dean Myers, the reigning National Ambassador for Young People’s Literature, breakfasters will listen to an impressive lineup of speakers: emcee Chris Colfer, John Green, Lois Lowry, and Kadir Nelson.

Chris Colfer, who won a Golden Globe for his portrayal of Kurt Hummel on Fox TV’s Glee, takes to the podium today in his new role as children’s book author. Colfer, 22, will have a long-held dream realized with the publication of The Land of Stories: The Wishing Spell, which Little, Brown will release in July with a 250,000-copy announced first printing. The novel introduces twins who leave their world behind and come face-to-face with fairy tale characters.

“This is something I have wanted to do since I was a kid, and I’m so relieved and happy to mark this off my bucket list,” Colfer says. “When I was five or six, I fell in love with a big book of fairy tales my mom read to me. I’d sit for hours and hours staring at the pages, imagining the adventures I wanted to have with these characters. Then a few years later, I began thinking up a story about a boy and girl who meet up with fairy tale characters, and I told my grandmother I wanted to write a book. She was very supportive, but when I tried to write it, I realized I didn’t have enough words to do the story justice, and I’d have to wait till I was more grown-up. So here I am!”

When agent Rob Weisbach approached Colfer to write his autobiography after his Golden Globe win, the actor replied that he’d rather write a children’s fantasy. “I could just imagine his face at the other end of the phone line,” Colfer says, laughing. “But he agreed and asked me to send him a sample of the story. I did, and within a couple of weeks I had my contract with Little, Brown.”

Though years have passed since Colfer took his initial stab at the story, writing The Land of Stories still wasn’t easy—especially given Colfer’s ample distractions. “Writing this book, keeping the story alive was difficult for me, though I was finally able to let it all flow,” he recalls. “The process was a bit crazy, since I wrote the novel while we were on a world tour for Glee. I’d write on planes, backstage—even under the stage. I’d jump up to sing a song and then go back and write for 10 minutes until the next song.”

Colfer is happy to have been asked to emcee at today’s breakfast—and to be at BEA. “This whole process of becoming a children’s book author has been so exciting for me, and I can’t begin to describe in words how much it means to me to be here,” he says. After the breakfast, Colfer will sign ARCs of The Land of Stories at the Little, Brown Books for Young Readers booth (3632), 11 a.m.–noon.

Apparently this was Chris's reaction when John Green joked about having found fanfiction about the two of them while looking up Chris on tumblr.

Now we know what a massively embarrassed Chris looks like in real life... ooppss
