Author Visit: Adam Gidwitz (Grades 3-5)

We are very excited about the Newbery Honor-winning author Adam Gidwitz’s visit to BCS. He will be speaking about his new book The Unicorn Rescue Society: The Creature of the Pines.

"Elliot Eisner isn’t exactly excited about starting at a brand-new school in a brand-new town; he’d much rather stay at home and read a book. But things take an unexpected turn when he finds out his weird new teacher, Professor Fauna, has planned a field trip for Elliot’s very first day. Along with a new friend—brave, outspoken Uchenna Devereaux—Elliot gets caught up in a secret group of adventurers, The Unicorn Rescue Society, whose goal is to protect and defend the world’s mythical creatures. Together with Professor Fauna, Elliot and Uchenna must help rescue a Jersey Devil  from a duo of conniving, greedy billionaires, the Schmoke Brothers."
