MEET ALAN WOLF

On February 11, 2021, we will kick off our final workshop series of the 2020-2021 Write to Learn Virtual Conference with our first-ever Authors’ Series.

Unlike the other series we’ve hosted this year, the Authors’ Series will consist of a series of three sessions, each led by a different best-selling children’s, middle grades, and YA author.

The first session in the series will be led by accomplished author and performer Allan Wolf.

Allan is the author of three new books for young people. His latest YA novel, The Snow Fell Three Graves Deep: Voices from the Donner Party, is an example of how he explores historical events from multiple points of view. The Day the Universe Exploded My Head is an illustrated collection of poems for children celebrating the wonders of our Solar System. And his latest picture book, No Buddy Like a Book, honors the special collaborative relationship between books and the readers who make them come to life.

A two-time winner of the North Carolina Young Adult Book Award, as well as Bankstreet College’s prestigious Claudia Lewis Award for Poetry, Allan’s picture books, poetry collections, and young adult novels showcase his love of research, history, science, and poetry. Booklist has named his historical verse novel, The Watch That Ends the Night: Voices from the Titanic, one of “The 50 Best Young Adult Books of All Time.”
