DEAD END IN NORVELT & NORVELT TO NOWHERE
WRITING AND DISCUSSING THE NEWBERY AWARD WINNING NOVEL: "History, Mystery, and Humor--and Characters you'll never forget!"
You need: Thoughtful and engaging characters, an expanding setting, different yet related problems galore, plenty of shifting action, a crisp core theme bonded to a strong plotline--and a trusting and sympathetic voice to tell the story and win over the reader.
Join Jack Gantos for a discussion of the NORVELT books and what they mean to readers and how they inspire writers.
