Motivate! Author Interview Series – Submit Your Questions for Kevin Bolger

Next up in the Motivate! Author Interview Series is Zombiekins author by night, teacher by day Kevin Bolger. After all, who better for the October interview than an author who specializes in fourth grade zombie attacks?


Last month, a group of students in Utah submitted questions for Rita Williams-Garcia. This month, we’re letting YOU submit the questions! You can ask your own questions or involve your students (be sure to let us know if your question comes from students!). Submit your questions here or on our Facebook page. Submit your questions by next Friday, October 15 October 20, and we’ll pick our favorites to send to Kevin. If your question is picked, you’ll win a copy of Zombiekins for your classroom! The interview will be posted at the end of the month, just in time for Halloween.

And don’t forget – there’s still time to enter to win the wimpy kid, Greg Heffley, for your classroom!

I look forward to the audio version because I am sure it will be very well done. Will there be a sequel (I haven’ read it yet so I don’t know if it ends with the possibility of one or not).
