How do you have to think unconventionally to write great stories for children? Join us as children's book author Bruce Coville talks about extraterrestrials and other oddities for kids.
Bruce Coville was born in Syracuse, New York, in 1950. His family lived in farm territory north of Syracuse and he grew up around the corner from his grandparents’ dairy farm, where he spent a great deal of time dodging cows and chores as well as he was able. As a young reader he loved Mary Poppins and Dr. Dolittle, but also read lots of things people consider junk (Nancy Drew, the Hardy Boys, Tom Swift, and zillions of comic books).
In 1978 he published his first book, The Foolish Giant, a picture book illustrated by his wife, Katherine. Since then he has published over 100 books for children and young adults, from picture books to young adult novels. Among his best known titles are My Teacher Is an Alien, Into the Land of the Unicorns, and Jeremy Thatcher, Dragon Hatcher. His work has appeared in 16 languages, and won children's choice awards in numerous states.
A frequent speaker at schools and conferences, Bruce has 3 times been opening or closing keynoter for the national conference of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators. He travels the world to speak in schools, and has presented at American or International Schools in Sao Paolo, London, Madrid, Shanghai, Delhi, Seoul, and many others.
In addition to his writing, in 2001 Bruce founded FULL CAST AUDIO, an audiobook publishing company devoted to producing full cast, unabridged recordings of great children's books. He has produced over a hundred audiobooks, frequently also directing or performing.
Bruce lives in Syracuse, New York, with his wife, author and illustrator Katherine Coville.
