Imagination Friday with Chris Grabenstein

December 8, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 1:45 pm

Three young children run down a curvy path of golden squares, surrounded by dice and sparkles.Meet Chris Grabenstein and celebrate his new graphic novel, Escape from Mr. Lemoncello’s Library. This bestselling book is now a full color, fun-packed graphic novel in which a group of game-loving kids must solve every clue to find the hidden escape route out of the town’s new library. Visual clues and book covers are embedded into the panels.

Chris will introduce his new book and process of writing, invite children to solve puzzles, and answer questions.

Host: Kathy Short, UArizona Regents Professor and Director of WOW.
Panelist: Chris Grabenstein
Co-Sponsor: Tucson Festival of Books

Chris Grabenstein is the bestselling author of the Lemoncello series, the Smartest Kid series, the Dog Squad series, the Wonderland series, the Haunted Mystery series, and The Island of Dr. Libris. He loves to write fast-paced, fun, and funny pageturners for kids. In his head, he’s still twelve years old–maybe ten.

Imagination Fridays is co-sponsored by the Tucson Festival of Books and Worlds of Words/University of Arizona and will occur from 1-1:45 p.m. once a month on a Friday from September to December with a different author or illustrator. Add some excitement to Fridays with world-renowned children’s authors and illustrators to promote new books and encourage children as readers, writers and illustrators.
