Here’s one celeb who I’m sure really IS writing his books

The Decemberists are a local group (just one of many marvelous Portland-based groups, like Furr, Blind Pilot, Horse Feathers, etc.) Now their lead singer and songwriter, Colin Meloy, has sold Wildwood, a middle-grade series, to Harper Collins. The first one will be out next year, and it will be illustrated by artist Carson Ellis. Harper says, “Wildwood is a classic tale of adventure, magic, and danger, set in an alternate version of modern-day Portland, Oregon.”

Meloy is such a great songwriter (go listen to The Hazards of Love, an album that tells a story from start to finish) that I’m sure this will be a great book.
