Thank you Tom Angleberger!

Our Media Center certainly was not quiet Tuesday after school when author Tom Angleberger dropped in for a hilarious Skype session, live from somewhere in his house…in Virginia (I think). Many of you have read his pair of books, The Strange Case of Origami Yoda, and Darth Paper Strikes Back, often attempting to fold his origami Star Wars characters, also saying how much you have loved the books. On Tuesday, though, we finally met the man behind characters like Tommy, Kellen, Harvey and Dwight. (Tom shared that he resembles Dwight the most.) Tom talked about books and authors he admires, like Daniel Pinkwater, and Lloyd Alexander’s Pyrdain Chronicles, and also gave us a heads-up on his newest book due out in April titled Fake Mustache! Oh, and yes, there will be a third in the Origami Yoda series due out in late August– just in time to kick off another terrific school year!

Here are two clips from our Skype session. Thanks again Tom, we had a blast!

      Glad you enjoyed it Bob. I agree, we should do this again! I hope you will consider signing up to read The Hunger Games this winter. The information goes out when we return from vacation.
