Ultimate Author Showdown
It's only March and in lots of places it still feels very much like winter, but here at the STACKS we are already dreaming about Summer! With that in mind, we are happy to announce that the Scholastic Summer Challenge will be kicking off soon with a Live Webcast.
Here's the lowdown - it's gonna be a showdown! Four amazing authors will compete in the Ultimate Author Showdown, a game show all about books. Each author will represent a different category, and YOU can help make up the questions. Think you can stump the authors? Submit your question.
- Representing People & Places: Christopher Paul Curtis, author of Elijah of Buxton, Bud Not Buddy, and The Watsons Go to Birmingham.
- Representing Fantasy & Adventure: Gordon Korman, author of The 39 Clues: One False Note, Swindle, and Zoobreak
- Representing Thrills & Chills: R.L. Stine, author of Goosebumps and HorrorLand
- Representing Friends & Fun: Lisa Yee, author of Millicent Min Girl Genius, and Stanford Wong Flunks Big Time
WHEN: Friday, April 30th at 1:00pm (ET)/10:00am (PT)
I know it's during the school day, but try to convince your teacher to sign up. It's about reading! Your teacher can sign up in advance at www.scholastic.com/summer
