Three years ago, the Decemberists' Colin Meloy wrote a song about Myla Goldberg's pretty hands and dangly limbs as "unique New York." With her first novel, Bee Season, Goldberg - who plays the banjo - won the adoration of brainy girls and boys everywhere. Bee Season is weird and lovable in its spelling bee awkwardness, and became a major motion picture. Her follow-up, Wickett's Remedy, about the 1918 influenza epidemic, is fascinating: It combines years of intense research and the fictional commentary of ghosts who offer their own funny interpretations on the story. Come hear this young star share her inspiration.
