Gordon Korman has been a household name for decades. Not only does he write stories that are lively and engaging for kids; he began doing it when he was just a 12-year-old kid himself. He’s now the author of more than 80 books, of which there are more than 17 million copies in print. Korman is also a tuning fork when it comes to what kids are dealing with every day. Take Restart, his most recent novel, in which the school bully suffers amnesia and is shocked to learn of the torment he inflicted on his peers. Or last year’s novel, Slacker, about a boy completely caught up in gaming. Come meet the man who’s unleashed his imagination to the delight of young readers for almost 40 years.

Suitable for Grades 4-7.
