Harris Burdick?

Some mornings, my inbox is full of too many things to share.  This morning is one of THOSE days.  Next month, The Chronicles of Harris Burdick will be released, with stories for each of 14 pictures from the original book by Chris Van Allsburg.

What happened to the mysterious Mr. Burdick?  Lemony Snicket attempts to explain in this video clip.

Excellent authors write stories to go with the pictures that have delighted and mystified readers for years.  I hope their stories are as good as the ones we have been making up all this time.

Write your OWN story for one of Burdick/Van Allsburg's illustrations and enter a contest sponsored by The New Yorker.  Click here for details.
