Share this post:

The Library of Congress invites you and your students to join in two upcoming virtual programs.

The first is ideal for upper elementary and lower middle school students, and features best-selling children’s author R.L. Stine. He will participate in a conversation about his career, his favorite books, his inspiration, and what it’s like when books transform into movies. It will take place on Wednesday, October 3, from 10:30 AM – 11:30 AM ET. It will be streamed live from the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C. here, and questions can be submitted via Twitter, using the hashtag #Goosebumps.

The second is ideal for early readers in grades K-2, and features WWE superstar wrestler John Cena, who has just written a children’s picture book.  He will read his book, Elbow Grease, as well as excerpts from a Richard Scarry book, which was Cena’s favorite as a child.  This will take place on Friday, October 12, 2018, from 10:30 AM – 11:30 AM ET. It will be streamed live from the Library of Congress on our YouTube channel.

  1. Looking forward to this!

  2. The Library of Congress is America’s greatest treasure. I am honored to have my book there. The events hosted by the library are vital to the nation and taking my African-American Literature classes to hear writers and poets was always the highlight of the year for my college students. Please continue to host these events. As a retired professor I will continue to engage my students as a substitute teacher until I die. Thank you.
