Little Rock author on NPR

Posted By on Tue, Mar 27, 2012 at 12:54 PM


Yesterday NPR featured New York Times best selling author Trenton Lee Stewart, who happens to live right here in Little Rock, with his wife and kids. Stewart is best known for his children's series, the Mysterious Benedict Society, which he's been cranking away at since 2007. In addition to making the bestseller's list, the first book in the series was a Notable Children's Book in 2008 and made it onto the Booklist Editors' Choice Books for Youth in 2007.

Stewart will make an appearance at the Arkansas Literary Festival on Saturday, April 12, on the fourth floor of the Clinton Library at 10 a.m., discussing the fourth book in the series "The Extraordinary Education of Nicholas Benedict," which will be released sometime this spring. All of the Benedict Society books are essentially detective adventures, about a ragtag group of exceptionally talented children who solve puzzles and decipher clues, finding themselves entangled in fantastic situations in their quest to save the world from some latest disaster.
