U.S. diplomat and Dormia author Peter Kujawinski and the How to Train Your Dragon series author and illustrator Cressida Cowell will visit and speak with students at Lincolnwood Elementary School in Evanston next week

Peter Kujawinski will speak on Monday, April 26, about how real life — he was a foreign service officer — can be the inspiration for fiction and how reality can nurse fantasy. According to Booklist “This (Dormia) fantasy is a wonderful intergenerational read-along and is a strong choice for readers still mourning the end of the Harry Potter books.”

Cressida Cowell’s How to Train Your Dragon series is the basis for a new Disney/Pixar 3D film. She will speak to the students on Thursday, April 29, about writing and art.
