Don’t miss the great Untitled Town photos below!
Don’t you love it when organizers of a book festival are setting the pace for the entire region with only their second festival? That’s true for Wendy Wimmer Schuchart, Alex Galt and the rest of the Untitled Town Book and Author Festival Board. I was thrilled to venture to Green Bay to join such esteemed authors as:
With an opportunity to talk to a small, but attentive and interactive group on advancements in children’s literature, to serving on panels about middle grade fiction and various avenues to publication, I had a ball. The festival featured multiple venues, which added to the fun, by either driving across the downtown Green Bay bridge, or hopping on the trolley, to get to the next session.
The Author Fair was a great time, with children and young adults, all aspiring authors excitedly coming over to buy a copy of my book. I am having great fun introducing audiences all over the state of Wisconsin, Arizona, and abroad in Italy and France to the first in my three-part series. Look for a future post on all the places The Stupendous Adventures of Mighty Marty Hayes has been so far.
An African-American tween uses espionage skills and superpowers in this debut middle-grade novel. Seventh-grader Marty Hayes is excited to work with the world-renowned CRISPR-Cas9 gene editing kit in science class. But things go awry…This rousing book with engaging characters should appeal to readers who enjoy adventurous superhero sagas. A thrilling tale with series potential that highlights science, spying, black history, and the importance of family"
Middle grade readers who pick up The Stupendous Adventures of Mighty Marty Hayes expecting a one-dimensional story of a young would-be scientist/superhero will find the read exciting, stimulating, and a powerful probe of heroism’s roots and friendship’s special challenges; highly recommended as a standout tale."
