On Friday, October 12th at 6:30 PM, YA author James Kennedy visits the Treehouse Museum to talk about his books and the 90-second Newbery Film Festival.

James Kennedy is the founder and curator of the 90-Second Newbery Film Festival, an annual video contest in which kid filmmakers create short movies that tell the entire stories of Newbery-winning books in about 90 seconds, with yearly screenings in New York, Chicago, San Francisco, Minneapolis, Boston, San Antonio, Portland, Tacoma, and other cities. For more information on rules and how to enter the contest, visit: http://90secondnewbery.com/about.

Kennedy is also the author of The Order of Odd-Fish (Random House Delacorte 2008), a young adult fantasy that was one of the Smithsonian's Notable Books for Children 2008, an ALA 2009 Best Books for Young Adults Nominee, and a YALSA 2014 Popular Paperbacks for Young Adults. He lives with his wife and two daughters in Chicago.

This event is made possible with support from the Treehouse Museum and Utah Humanities.
