New York Times bestselling author Ben Mezrich and co-author Tonya Mezrich will meet with kids ages 8-14 to discuss paper airplanes, the science of flight and the importance of STEM in children’s books as it relates to their newest book: Charlie Numbers and the Man in the Moon. Kids will be invited to participate in the discussion as well as in their very own paper airplane building contest to simulate the contest that takes place in the book.
