ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: A TALE OF MAGIC: Chris Colfer previews first enchanting book in new Land of Stories series

EW has an exclusive preview of the award-winning author’s next middle-grade book, A Tale of Magic…, which centers on Brystal Evergreen, a young girl destined for greatness, but forced to survive the oppressive Southern Kingdom. Her only escape is books, but it’s illegal for women to read in her country, and working as a maid at the local library is the only way to access them. She eventually finds a book about magic that changes her life forever — and discovers she herself is capable of magic. The only problem: Magic is despised and outlawed, and Brystal is convicted for her crimes.
