FOR KIDS!
Brad Meltzer and Christopher Eliopoulos (illustrator), I Am Anne Frank &  I Am Benjamin Franklin 
(Ordinary People Change the World Series)
For children ages 5 - 12

In Conversation with Holly Firfer, CNN Journalist

In a time when heroes are in high demand, Book Festival fan favorite Brad Meltzer returns with his talented illustrator, Christopher Eliopoulos, to present two new books in his “Ordinary People Change the World” Series: I Am Anne Frank & I Am Benjamin Franklin. These books are the 21st and 22nd books in Brad’s and Christopher’s series of biographies for kids that focuses on the traits that made these ordinary heroes great – the traits that kids can aspire to in order to live heroically themselves. Each book tells the story of an icon in a lively, conversational way that works well for the youngest nonfiction readers. Each book includes an excellent timeline and photos. One book tells the story of Anne Frank, whose courage and hope during a time of terror are still an inspiration for people around the world today, while the second recounts the tale of Benjamin Franklin, one of the Founding Fathers of the US and a man whose scientific contributions continue to define the society we live in today.

Parents: have pencils and paper ready – Christopher will teach our youngest viewers how to draw their ordinary heroes!

Brad Meltzer is the New York Times bestselling author of Heroes for My Son, Heroes for My Daughter, and a number of suspense novels like The Escape Artist. He is also the host of the History Channel television shows Brad Meltzer's Decoded and Brad Meltzer's Lost History (in which he helped find the missing 9/11 flag). He lives in Florida with his wife and their three children.

Christopher Eliopoulos began his illustration career at Marvel Comics, and has worked on thousands of comics, including Cosmic Commandos, Monster Mayhem, Franklin Richards: Son of a Genius, Pet Avengers, and Cow Boy, all of which he wrote and illustrated. He lives in New Jersey with his wife and their identical twin sons (when the boys are home from college).

Presented in partnership with the National JCC Literary Consortium

All books include shipping to the US and Canada only. Books will be shipped after the event.
