Following a question and answer session, Brallier will spend a little one-on-one with students as he signs books for his young fans.

One of the topics Brallier will likely discuss is creativity. In past interviews, Brallier has stated that long before he wrote his first bestseller, he was dreaming up stories.

“An imagination,” Brallier said, “Is the key to my success as a writer.”

Scholastic Book Fairs and the Aldine ISD Title I Department are sponsoring the visit and book signing to inspire interest in books and reading.

“We hope bringing a well–known author like Br. Brallier will spark kids‘ interest in books and encourage a life–long love of reading.”
