Author Adam Gidwitz is the author of the Newbery Honor winning The Inquisitor's Tale, the New York Times bestseller A Tale Dark & Grimm, and The Unicorn Rescue Society series. When asked “Are you a teacher who writes, or a writer who teaches?,” the author answered “…I am both, and very much so. And of course, in writing I hope to do the same thing I do with my teaching: to lead children to a deeper, more emotionally connected and integrated understanding of the world.”

During the program, Gidwitz talks about his books, his writing process, and offers advice to students. Students from Stone Middle School (FCPS) ask questions via Skype. The author also answers students’ e-mail questions and questions from phone calls. A roll-in, “What is a Chupacabra?” rounds out the show.
