Marcus and the Amazons: Teens/ Tweens Program @ MBFI 2011



I will be reading from Marcus and the Amazons as a part of the teens/tweens program. The kickoff for the program begins on Sunday, Nov. 13, with young-adult novelist Christopher Paolini, who will discuss his latest book, the fourth and final installment of the Inheritance cycle. This author presentation is free with a ticket, which can be obtained on the Fair site. Chapman Center (Building 3, second floor).  

Student Literary Encounters

On Thursday and Friday, Nov. 17 – 18, the Fair will host hundreds of students from local elementary, middle and high schools. They arrive from Miami-Dade and Broward county schools to listen to and meet their favorite authors and illustrators, and to be introduced to new works of fiction or nonfiction that they may otherwise not have been exposed to. Free. For reservations, please contact Nicole Swift at Nicole.swift@mdc.edu.
