PRESENTER: AUTHOR SOMAN CHAINANI


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.

They may recognize his name from his best-selling School for Good and Evil series, but on October 7, 2021, students will get to hear from Soman Chainani about his new book, Beasts and Beauty, a collection of twelve stories based on familiar fairy tales.  

 

Soman will outline the book’s background, why he chose to write this new collection following the School for Good and Evil series, and how he reimagined each fairy tale to address the anxieties and struggles of today’s readers. This background will serve as a springboard into a larger discussion about the craft of writing and Soman’s process as an author, ending with answering any questions that students/teachers may have, including the upcoming big-screen adaptation by Netflix of the School for Good and Evil

 

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 watch live with your students in the classroom, or if you can’t 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 it at time of registration.
