Jordan Sonnenblick, author of seven books for children and young adults, was an eight grade English teacher when he wrote Drums, Girls and Dangerous Pie for one of his students. The twelve year old sister was having a hard time when her brother was undergoing cancer treatments. At the time, Sonnenblick couldn’t find another novel on the subject, and his writing career was born. He has also written Notes From the Midnight Driver, Zen and the Art of Faking It, and Dodger and Me. As a graduating senior at Stuyvesant High School, his English teacher, Frank McCourt, author of Angela’s Ashes, awarded him a writing prize. A book signing will follow his presentation.
