In an eventful two-day affair hosted by Anderson's Bookshops, don't miss the opportunity to meet and hear some of the nation's most exciting and inspiring authors in STEM at the Festival Expo's Book Fair.
Hear these authors talk about their books and adventures, April 26-27, 2014, plus get your favorite must-have books autographed. The Book Fair will also feature STEM-related games toys and learning kits for kids of all ages, and those who are kids at heart!
Here are just some of the amazing authors you will experience:
Michio Kaku. What does the future hold for the human mind and consciousness? Plenty, says this famous theoretical physicist and futurist -- who in his bold #1 New York Times best-selling book, The Future of the Mind, foresees a time when our dreams will be able to be captured on video and shared with others; scientists will build an internet of the brain through which our thoughts and emotions can be sent worldwide, plus other wonders!
Jon Scieszka. He's the nation's first National Ambassador of Young People's Literature, and the author of such children's favorites as The True Story of the 3 Little Pigs, The Stinky Cheese Man, and the Time Warp Trio series. At the Book Fair, he'll be unveiling his exciting new Science Action Invention series, Frank Einstein.
Megan McDonald. The creator of the popular and award-winning Judy Moody, and the Stink book series, Megan will shed light on her latest work, Stink Solar System Superhero, in which she merges facts about astrophysics with everyday second-grade school experiences.
David Macaulay. He's an award-winning author and illustrator whose books have sold millions of copies in the United States alone, and his work has been translated into a dozen languages. His most recent book, The Way We Work: Getting to Know the Amazing Human Body, is also sure to become a favorite among readers as it beautifully explains the inner workings of the human body in fascinating ways.
(In addition to their appearances at the Book Fair, the authors above will also conduct stage presentations on their work at the Expo.)
Remember, the Festival Expo Book Fair is FREE, and author presentations begin at 9:30 a.m. on Saturday, April 26, 2014 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center, D.C. on the EXPO Concourse Hall C.
