An Adventure to Remember

Can Navajo stepsiblings take down a dangerous Water Monster? What is causing a mysterious memory swap between two strangers? Will a magical medieval kingdom accept a nonbinary knight? And can a young boy survive the new friends, classes, and experiences that accompany the first year of middle school? Join Emmy Award–nominated creator Jorge Cham (Oliver’s Great Big Universe), beloved author Gordon Korman (Mixed-Up), and stellar newcomer Esme Symes-Smith (Sir Callie and The Champions of Helston) as they discuss how their characters embark on some of the most exciting and emotionally gripping adventures a kid could ever face. Moderated by award-winning author Brian Young (Healer of the Water Monster).
