WHAT DO YOU WONDER?

What do clouds feel like? How fast does the world's fastest train go? Wonder has always driven my book ideas and writing and it's help me develop a love of research. During this program, I'll talk with participants about the types of research I do and how they could be doing the same sort of investigating.

Yes, sometimes research involves digging through old books and files, but a lot of times it doesn't. My "research" has required me to taste-test cricket cookies, jump out of an airplane, ride an elephant, and hang out backstage with a boy band.

This program shows participants how my books have been shaped by curiosity -- and by the research I've done to answer those questions. Students will leave understanding how my work as a nonfiction author relates to the work they do at school.
