P&P Live! Brad Meltzer and Chris Eliopoulos-I Am Anne Frank and I Am Benjamin Franklin

Upcoming Event
Wednesday, October 14, 2020 - 7:00pm

Join the author/illustrator team behind a bestselling, inspiring picture book biography series as they introduce the latest additions to the collection. I Am Anne Frank, the first book in the series to focus on a child, is of special significance to the author--“The rise of Anti-Semitism…the way religious, ethnic and racial minorities are regularly targeted…it’s impossible to ignore – and I want my kids to see and find strength from Anne Frank’s lessons. I am proud of my Jewish heritage, and Anne Frank’s incredible story is one I’m honored to share with readers everywhere,” Meltzer wrote. I Am Ben Franklin is perfect for election season and talking to children about science and inventions. Focusing on the traits that made them remarkable, each biography presents the story of a historical figure in a lively and conversational way.

Chris will demonstrate his delightful art style throughout the discussion, which will culminate in an audience Q&A.

Brad Meltzer is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Heroes for My Son and Heroes for My Daughter, as well as several suspense and nonfiction titles for adults. He is also the host of the History Channel television shows Brad Meltzer's Decoded and Brad Meltzer's Lost History (which he used to help find the missing 9/11 flag). He is the co-creator of Xavier Riddle and the Secret Museum – and of course, the inspiration for Brad. He lives in Florida with his wife and their three children.

Christopher Eliopoulos began his illustration career at Marvel Comics, and has worked on thousands of comics, including Cosmic Commandos, Monster Mayhem, Franklin Richards: Son of a Genius, Pet Avengers, Cow Boy, and his first picture bookThe Yawns Are Coming! He lives in New Jersey with his wife and their identical twin sons (when the boys are home from college).
