Cecily von Ziegesar is the author of the bestselling young adult series, "Gossip Girl," upon which the hit TV show is based. She will read from her debut adult novel, "Cum Laude," to be published by Hyperion in September, 2009. The novel, set on the campus of a college in Maine, explores the issues that confound us all during our first year in college.

Dominic Preziosi's fiction, articles and essays have appeared in literary journals and anthologies, including Avery, The Brooklyn Review, SmokeLong Quarterly, Storyglossia, and JMWW Journal's Best of 2007. He teaches at the Gotham Writers Workshop, has taught writing at CUNY, and been an editor at McGraw-Hill, Forbes, and elsewhere. He holds an MFA in Fiction from Brooklyn College.

Julia Lichtblau's fiction has appeared in Pindeldyboz and Tertulia and been chosen as a finalist in writers contests sponsored by Moment Magazine, New York Stories, and Salt Flats Annual. She was a journalist for 15 years at Dow Jones and BusinessWeek in New York and Paris.

All three writers are PS 29 parents.
