Alex Gino is an engaging educator, speaker, and storyteller who brings the magic of literature to the classroom (or auditorium, lunch room, janitor’s closet—Alex is flexible.) Alex's presentations are interactive and tailored to your audience, but are always based in the belief that children deserve space to develop and express who they are. Laughter is expected!
Alex is based in Oakland, California, but loves a good excuse to travel. Alex has a B.A. in Elementary Education from the University of Pennsylvania, and has taught students from first graders through adults. Alex's debut novel, George, has received significant media praise including four starred reviews, mentions in People and Entertainment Weekly magazines, and will be translated into ten other languages.
