Reading now: 244

Brian Steinberg Senior TV Editor As an alumna of “Saturday Night Live,” Kate McKinnon knows what it takes to come up with interesting characters.

Now she will do so for a decidedly different format. The comic actor plans to launch a debut novel aimed at young-adult readers. “The Millicent Quibb School of Etiquette for Young Ladies of Mad Science” is envisioned as the first book in a series aimed at readers between the ages of 8 and 12, and will be published by Little, Brown Books for Young Readers, a division of Hachette Book Group.

The series centers on the three Porch Sisters — Gertrude, Eugenia, and Dee-Dee — and Millicent Quibb, the lone mad scientist in their hometown of Antiquarium.

McKinnon is bringing life to a story she has been working on for years. “I wanted to write the kind of book that I would have loved reading when I was younger, when I was eating honeysuckle on the playground and collecting bugs and falling in love with the natural world,” she said via a statement. “I hope young people read about the adventures of the Porch Sisters and are inspired to get out there and have their own adventures.” Erika Turner, executive editor of the division, acquired North American rights from Ted Malawer at Upstart Crow Literary and will edit the project.
