Ask Karen Lord anything you want about The Best of All Possible Worlds

In February, the io9 Book Club read The Best of All Possible Worlds, Karen Lord's brand new novel. Today, Tuesday March 12, Lord will be joining us to answer any of your questions about the book.

She'll be here from 12-1 PM Pacific Time today so get started asking questions now (just post in comments below), and she'll get to as many as she can.

Want to find out more about the io9 book club? You can see our past meetings here, and get started on this month's book (the title is revealed at the end of this post.)
