Author Visit: Kenneth Oppel 

Wednesday, Oct. 16

Kenneth Oppel, the multi-award-winning Canadian author of the highly popular children's books Silverwing, Airborn and The Apprenticeship of Victor Frankenstein series, is coming to Boise.

Oppel presents A Little Scribbling, a talk that offers insight into his books, the writing process and the characters that earned him a Canadian Governor General's Award for children's literature and the Michael L. Printz Honor Book Award. He began writing at a very young age and his first book was published when he was 17. A Little Scribbling will give an account of how he managed to land a book deal before he could legally vote, and how this moment led to the style and personality that influences his writing.

The now 46-year-old author will be signing books, talking with fans, selling his novels through Rediscovered Books and offering insight into his fantastic, often heartwarming, steampunk tales. A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Friends of the Boise Public Library and help encourage literacy through all walks of life.
