Children's Book World (CBW) will host its “Author Talk”, presented by Newbery Honor Medal winning author Gennifer Choldenko, at Hillel Hebrew Academy on today at 10:00 a.m.
Children’s Book World, 10580 1/2 West Pico Blvd., has been serving the Westside community and surrounding areas as a source for children's books and author events for the past 24 years. CBW was selected as one of the best 12 bookstores nationwide in a readers' poll in the Hunffington Post in Dec. of 2010.
Nearly 300 fourth through sixth grade students from neighboring schools along with Hillel Hebrew Academy will be in attendance, where Choldenko will present her new junior high school novel No Passengers Beyond This Point, set in a fantastical place with rules all of its own, that tells a story of adventure and survival.
In addition to Choldenko’s new book, she will also discuss her award-winning Al Capone series. After the 'Author Talk', she will be delighted to answer all student questions.
