Chris Grabenstein & book

Chris Grabenstein, author of the OPLbery Medal winning, Escape From Mr. Lemoncello’s Library and many other books, thrilled audience members with a terrific and humorous presentation at the Ossining Public Library. The Children’s Program Room was filled to capacity on Saturday, March 22nd with OPLbery Club participants and others who listened to Chris discuss the origins of his story ideas, concentrating especially on the writing of Escape From Mr. Lemoncello’s Library. This book was chosen by the OPLbery Club members as the best book published in 2013. The OPLbery Club, a Mock Newbery Club, met monthly in 2013 to evaluate books published during that year. In January 2014, after reading over 40 books, the Club members voted for their prize winners. Chris Grabenstein’s book was awarded the top honor.
