Behind The Book-Jack Gantos

11:59

Jack Gantos has written books for people of all ages. His works include Hole in My Life, a Michael L. Printz Honor memoir; Joey Pigza Swallowed the Key, a National Book Award Finalist; and Dead End in Norvelt, a Newbery Award winner. The seeds for Jack’s writing career were planted in sixth grade, when he read his sister’s diary and decided he could write better than she could. He began to collect anecdotes he overheard, mostly from eavesdropping outside the teachers’ lounge, later including many of these anecdotes in his books. He now devotes his time to writing books and educational speaking. jackgantos.com
