Gene Luen Yang appears at R.J. Julia Booksellers on Monday April 3, 2017 at 6:30 PM!
Gene is this year’s National Ambassador to Young People’s Literature and will be discussing Reading Without Walls, an inclusive way to spread appreciation and understanding for others — and to learn new and exciting things!
Stately Academy is no ordinary school: it was once home to an elite institute where teachers, students, and robots worked together to unravel the mysteries of coding. Hopper, Eni, and Josh won’t rest until they’ve learned the whole story, but they aren’t the only ones interested in the school’s past.
Principal Dean is hot on their trail, demanding that the coders turn over their most powerful robot. Dean may be a creep, but he’s nothing compared to the guy who’s really in charge: a green-skinned coding genius named Professor One-Zero.
