Visiting Author Adam Gidwitz Wins Newbery Award!

Adam Gidwitz, author extraordinaire, has established quite a fan base here at PS 196Q since his visit with fifth graders on December 5th, 2016.  Thus, it isn’t any wonder how quickly word spread of his most recent achievement.  On January 23rd, 2017, Adam Gidwitz received one of the highest awards in children’s literature in the U.S  — a Newbery Honor!  Mr. Gidwitz received this honor for his fifth book, The Inquisitor’s Tale.

Fascination with Mr. Gidwitz and his books all began with Gidwitz’s captivating, and dare I say, gory, presentations of his retellings of the original Grimm Brothers stories.    Since his visit, “Gidwitz” and “Grimm” seem to have become household names at PS 196Q as copies of Mr. Gidwitz’s books continue to fly off library and classroom shelves!


Congratulations Adam Gidwitz!
