Philadelphia native Lloyd Alexander wrote more than 40 books for children and young adults, including the “exciting, highly imaginative, and sometimes profound” (New York Times) fantasy series The Chronicles of Prydain. He was also the author of several other book series, novels, and historical biographies.  Among Alexander’s many honors were the 1969 Newbery Medal, the 1971 National Book award in the Children’s Books category, and the 2003 World Fantasy Award for Lifetime Achievement. Here to present this beloved writer’s groundbreaking work is bestselling fantasy author Tamora Pierce, followed by a discussion with Alexander’s goddaughter Sharyn November, senior editor at Viking Children’s Books and Editorial Director at Firebird Books.

A screening of "The Black Cauldron" will follow the lecture and discussion.
