Vampires Vs. Werewolves Smackdown at the Decatur Book Festival

Forget Edward and Jacob. On Saturday, September 5th at 2:30 on the Escape stage at Several Dancers Core, the fight between vampires and werewolves is going to get way, way deeper. Moderating (or shall I say feeding on) this blood-beats-fur, claw-beats-fang smackdown where you get to chime in about which novels are better --those filled with the Children of the Night, or those focused on the Manbeasts-- will be supernatural superstar Richelle Mead (author of the NYT bestselling series, Vampire Academy, among others), and so-cool-she-gives-me-chills author Maggie Stiefvater, whose new book Shiver just hit #5 on the NYT bestselling list last week.

I am so personally completely psyched about this discussion, and I don't even like books about vampires or werewolves (or unicorns or faeries or anything like that). I hope that you will sharpen your fangs and claws, bring your best backup arguments, and get ready to see who is left standing.
