ABOUT BORN TO READ BOOK CLUB: 
 

We're all feeling a little cooped up right now, especially young people with lots of energy to spare. Who doesn't want to hit the road in search of a little adventure? While we can't hit the road, we can still go on a journey together virtually in search of some fun.

Join George O'Connor, author of the New York Times bestselling Olympians graphic novel series and Nicole Swift, WORD Kids & YA manager as they explore the latest and greatest in high-octane thrills and action-adventure fiction for young readers. Every month the book club meeting starts with a chat between attendees and hosts George and Nicole so we can talk about what we read.
What makes this journey even more fun? Well, the only thing more exciting than reading is meeting the authors who wrote the books! After our short chat, we'll bring in the actual author of the book for an exclusive talk and live Q&A! You get to read, you get to talk about reading, you get to ask questions about what you read to the people who wrote the books! 

 

Move over Indiana Jones, step aside Han Solo, watch out other various Harrison Ford characters... some adventurers are born to raid... and some are Born to Read. 

 

ABOUT THE BOOK CLUB HOSTS:

George O'Connor is an author, illustrator and cartoonist. Above all, George is a Greek mythology buff and a classic superhero comics fan, and he's out to remind us how much our pantheon of superheroes (Superman, Batman, the X-Men, etc) owes to mankind's original superheroes: the Greek pantheon. Now he has brought his attention to OLYMPIANS, an ongoing series retelling the classic Greek myths in comics form. In his New York Times bestselling Olympians series, O'Connor draws from primary documents to reconstruct and retell classic Greek myths. But these stories aren't sedate, scholarly works. They're action-packed, fast-paced, high-drama adventures, with monsters, romance, and not a few huge explosions. O'Connor's vibrant, kinetic art brings ancient tales to undeniable life, in a perfect fusion of super-hero aesthetics and ancient Greek mythology.
In addition to his graphic novel career, O'Connor has published several children's picture books, including the New York Times best-selling Kapow!, Sally and the Some-Thing, If I Had a Raptor and If I Had a Triceratops. George lives in Brooklyn, NY with four terrible cats and one good one. 

Nicole Swift is not an author, or an illustrator, or a cartoonist but she does love kids books and greek mythology. Nicole is WORD Bookstore's Kids and YA Event Manager and has served as an Event Manager for kids and graphic novels at the Miami Book Fair for almost a decade. Both jobs are action-packed daily adventures. She comes from Miami, Florida and currently resides in Brooklyn where there is not nearly as much sun or palm trees, but she has a lot of books and a lot of cats.
