Presented by The Vancouver Writers Fest
Polly Horvath, Gordon Korman
Two superstars of the middle grade realm take the stage with vastly different stories that have this in common: kids in control and with the power to effect change. Polly Horvath, recipient of a Newbery Honor and a National Book Award, transports us to a farm on Vancouver Island during WWII in her magical tale about a garden that grants wishes. But do these wishes come at a cost? Master storyteller Gordon Korman, author of more than 80 middle grade and YA novels, introduces us to Chase Ambrose who, after falling off a roof, forgets that he’s the biggest bully at Hiawassee Middle School. Kids have an innate sense of justice and Korman presses them to think deeply about the potential for redemption.
