Gordon korman visits raleigh
Gordon Korman visited Quail Ridge Bookstore! When asked for advice about writing, he said that writers should try to write write daily, and to read a lot. He also recommended the writing of Jack Gantos. He said one of his favorite genres is humor. Mr. Korman has written over 80 books for kids and teens.
"There's a reason Gordon Korman has two books (The Hypnotists; Ungifted) among the current NC Children's Choice nominees – he definitely speaks to kids. He visits on Monday, February 9, at 7 p.m. with Masterminds, the start of a new series. "It's that rare book that scares you to the core while you're laughing your head off." - Peter Lerangis (The Seven Wonders series). Because of Gordon's extensive backlist, he will sign or personalize Masterminds and Ungifted, and sign up to two other of his titles with the purchase of Masterminds or Ungifted. For ages 8+." - from Quail Ridge Bookstore website
