Newbery Honor Award-Winning Author Adam Gidwitz will visit NBPS on Tuesday, September 19th! Gidwitz, the best-selling author of the Grimm Trilogy, So You Want to be a Jedi, and his most recent release and award winner, The Inquisitor’s Tale, will be speaking with students in grades 3-8. Gidwitz’s philosophy about writing for children is that “children want to be challenged, made to think and reconsider; they want to learn and grow and become wiser. Kids will like a book with a great story. But they will only love a book that makes them see the world in a new way.”
To prepare for his visit, all Middle School students read at least one of these titles for their Summer Reading, and are invited to bring their copies along to be signed by our visiting author. Additional copies will be offered for sale through the LS Media Center and US Learning Commons. Gidwitz will speak with students during the day, and host a special evening dinner for families in the Learning Commons. Watch for evening event sign up opportunities in your inbox! Gidwitz’s visit is being generously underwritten by the PSTA and Upper School Friends of the Library.
