Behind the Book Author Takeover STUDENT EDITION with Judd Winick


Our Author Takeover Student Edition events give students a chance to hear from popular authors about their books and writing process to inspire a generation of future readers and writers.

On Tuesday, September 21, at 11:00am CT, students will get to hear from Judd Winick, the creator of Hilo, an action-packed, best-selling middle grade graphic novel series that has laugh-out-loud humor and a whole lot of heart.

 We will learn more about the latest edition to the series: Gina-The Girl Who Broke the World. The Hilo series is filled with epic battles, friendship, and magic and is a favorite of both kids and critics. This is sure to be a fun-filled event your students won’t want to miss. 

We hope this event will: 

  • Introduce students to an author they might not already be familiar with allowing for an author/reader relationship to develop.
  • Give students a better understanding of the author’s viewpoint on the story to deepen their investment in the book or series.
  • Bring writing to life and, in turn, ignite the inspiration of reading.

We are excited to offer you this event to either watch live with your students in the classroom or if you aren’t able to attend live, all registrants will also receive the recording to share with their students. 


Questions about this event should be sent to pubsubmit@follett.com.


PLEASE NOTE: In an effort to minimize disruptions, we will be disabling the Q & A and chat (to anyone other than the host) functionality. If you would like to submit a question for the author and have it answered live if time permits, please feel free to submit that at time of registration.
