Back-to-School: Author Event!

Looking for a way to get your middle-grades students psyched about reading? Here’s something unique: you’re invited to a live author event featuring Cornelia Funke, author of The Thief Lord and the Inkworld Trilogy. The event celebrates the release of Cornelia Funke’s new book, Reckless. Written for middle grades, the book follows Jacob Reckless on his quest to find his father and save his brother. The event will feature a dramatic reading from the book by its author, an interactive Q&A session (your students can submit questions in advance!), a musical performance by Adam Watts, and much more.

Mark your calendar: this live online extravaganza will be held Tuesday, September 14, at 1:30 p.m. EST. To learn how to participate or to read the first chapter of the book, visit Be a little Reckless and join in the fun!


PS: Lower-grades teachers, don’t feel left out—soon I’ll be posting some fun book-related freebies for you and your students!
