On Friday, September 18th award winning children’s author Kenneth Oppel will be making several virtual author visits with local schools and students learning from home. Oppel won the 2004 Governor General’s Literary Award for Children’s Literature for his steam laden Airborn Trilogy. His latest Overthrow Series will have middle school and young adults happily trembling in their boots. The event will be hosted by the Gananoque Public Library.
