Behind the Book Author Takeover with Kate Messner


4/6/2021 3:00 PM

Myths! Lies! Secrets! The History Smashers series uncovers the hidden truth behind key moments in history.

Hear beloved educator/author Kate Messner discuss The Titanic — the latest addition to the series — and give tips on how to bring the book’s fun mix of sidebars, illustrations, photos, and graphic panels into the classroom. 

We hope this event will: 

  • Introduce you to an author and illustrator who you might not already be familiar with
  • Extract topics from books that could align with your lesson planning
  • Give you some deeper background and the author's and illustrator's viewpoint on the story
