Gordon Korman wrote his first book for a seventh grade English project when he was twelve. He now travels 40,000 miles each year talking with groups of students about reading, writing and his many books.

His funny and entertaining presentation centers on developing ideas and characters, humor, dialogue, editing and revising, and, of course, the "Young Authors" gone crazy that became This Can't Be Happening at MacDonald Hall!
