Kenneth Oppel graces our festival stages year after year, and without fail, hundreds of bright, creative youth are enthralled by this master storyteller. He joins us once again to discuss Ghostlight: a thrilling tale in which Gabe discovers a secret society that protects the world from evil spirits—and realizes he must stop one in particular before they all become lost souls. Prolific and multi-award-winning, Oppel’s books are called “astonishing,” “phenomenal,” and “heartstopping” by major media. No wonder his books have sold over a million copies worldwide. What a treat for students to hear from this incomparable mind. Grades 4–8.
