George O’Connor, author and illustrator of the popular “Olympians” graphic novel series, will visit the Delaware Branch on Tuesday, April 2, at 3 pm. Children, teens, and families are encouraged to come meet the author at this free event.
Long before Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman, there were the original superheroes: the gods and goddesses of Ancient Greece! In this special presentation, O’Connor will describe how he brings Zeus, Athena, Poseidon, and the other Greek gods to life in his highly acclaimed “Olympians” graphic novels.
After the presentation, we’ll raffle off copies of O’Connor’s newest “Olympians” book — “Poseidon” — to 10 children or teens in the audience. O’Connor will be happy to personally sign each copy for its luck winner!
In addition to the “Olympians” graphic novels, O’Connor has published several children’s picture books, including the New York Times best-selling “Kapow,” “Sally and the Some-Thing,” and “Uncle Bigfoot.” You can learn more about the author at www.olympiansrule.com.
