Gordon Korman’s writing career began in 7th grade… completely by accident. He spent four months writing a manuscript and then — since he was the Scholastic Book Order monitor for his class and “practically an employee” — sent the manuscript to Scholastic. THIS CAN’T BE HAPPENING AT MACDONALD HALL was published by Scholastic when he was a freshman in high school.

It’s a pretty (cool) start to a writing career, right? More than three decades later, Korman has written over 80 children’s and young adult fiction books. On January 11, he’ll be inspiring Baltimore-area kids thanks to a virtual author visit sponsored by Baltimore County Public Library! The fun happens from 7 PM to 8 PM via Zoom. So comfy pajama pants are encouraged.

If your kiddo wants to meet New York Time’s bestselling author Gordon Korman, all you need to do is register for BCPL’s Zoom Program with a valid email address and make sure your Zoom software is up-to-date. Registration closes an hour before the discussion.
