Books By the Bay 2024: John Patrick Green: The Life of A Graphic Novelist, Reading, and Q&A

March 24 @ 11:00 am - 11:50 am

Emerald Coast Writers, Inc. and Books By the Bay 2024 welcomes popular middle-grade author John Patrick Green, creator and author of The InvestiGator Series for a featured speaker presentation. Green discusses the life of a graphic novelist, reads from his books, and answers questions from the audience.

Green, also the creator of the early reader graphic novel Hippopotamister and the Kitten Construction Company duology, says he is a human whose job it is to write about animals with human jobs. He especially enjoys writing puns and anything silly. Green grew up reading comic strips and comic books and loves to draw cartoon animals. When he is not writing and drawing, John loves to bake sourdough bread, make pizza, stare at the boxes of LEGO sets he still has not gotten around to building, and play video games. He also co-writes the InvestiGators spin-off, Agents of S.U.I.T., and is the co-creator and illustrator of the Teen Boat! series. Born and raised on Long Island, NY, attended the School of Visual Arts, and now lives and works in Brooklyn.

Following his presentation, John Patrick Green will sign copies of his book in the exhibitor tent.

Attendees should enter the Voices Multicultural Building from the Church Street entrance. Children, young adults, and grown-ups welcome! Funding is provided in part through a Florida Humanities Book Festival Grant with funds from the National Endowment for the Humanities and in partnership with the the Emerald Coast Writers, Inc..
