David A. Adler is the author of 270 books including all the Cam Jansen Mysteries, the Picture Book Biography Series, and the Mo Jackson Sports books. His recent book DON’T THROW IT TO MO was awarded the 2016 Theodor Seuss Geisel Medal by the American Library Association. He was awarded the 2017 Regina Medal and the Knickerbocker Award for his body of work. When he speaks to children he follows a book from idea through the research, writing, rewriting, editing, galleys, illustration, and printing steps. For just about every step there is a demonstration of one kind or another. The demonstrations differ depending on the age/grade level of the audience.
