Behind the Book Author Takeover STUDENT EDITION with Max Brallier


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.

4/21/2021 11:00 AM

You won't want to miss our Student Edition takeover with Max Brallier, best-selling author of The Last Kids on Earth books, which is also now available on Netflix.

This laugh-out-loud funny series is perfect for reluctant readers – with fast-paced writing and illustrations on every spread. 

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 stream while eLearning)! Can’t attend live? All registrants will also receive the recording to share with their students.
