Lemony Snicket Creator Cites ‘Peanuts’ Influence

The man behind the arch-gothic Lemony Snicket books for young readers says the Peanuts comic strip was an important influence on his writing.

The deeper he delves into the world of Peanuts, says author Daniel Handler, the darker it seems to him.

 Handler’s most recent novel, We Are Pirates, also features a teenaged girl as its central character. But he says the story itself was inspired by his life in San Francisco.

"Lemony Snicket" will be at the Charles Schulz Museum in Santa Rosa at 2 pm on Saturday, March 18, to talk about Schulz and other things, and sign books. Find event details here.
