Day Two of the FAME Conference!
I’ve been to some really helpful sessions today, but this is not the place for that.
This is the place for…more authors! During the conference I also got to meet both Gordon Korman (!) and Roland Smith (!).
I was able to attend Roland Smith’s author session and I must say if you ever get the chance to hear him speak DO IT! He has lived such an interesting life and he is a very captivating speaker.
Smith accepted an award for his novel I.Q; Independence Hall which was voted (by the kids in FL) the Florida Sunshine State Award for 2010-2011. Both my students and I love this series.
Additionally, I was also able to hear Gordon Korman speak about some of his works and how he published his first book in 7th grade! My students really enjoy Korman’s books, especially the his books in The 39 Clues series, Schooled and Swindle.
Korman also signed some books for my Media Center! Somewhere in the middle of all this, I must confess, that I developed a mini crush on Gordon Korman! He’s adorable, hilarious, and he writes books my kids love; it’s the perfect storm!!
Seriously love the FAME conference!!
