James Kennedy is the author of The Order of Odd-Fish, a young adult fantasy that was named one of the Smithsonian's Notable Books for Children. Booklist praised Odd-Fish as "hilarious" and Time Out Chicago described it as "a work of mischievous imagination and outrageous invention." James is also the founder and curator of the 90-Second Newbery Film Festival, in which kid filmmakers are challenged to create movies that tell the story of Newbery Award-winning books in 90 seconds or less, screening annually in New York, San Francisco, Portland, and other cities--including here in Chicago, on January 25, 2015, at Adventure Stage Chicago (1012 N. Noble)! James lives in Chicago with his wife and two daughters.

Please join James and all our outrageous readers on Tuesday, January 6, 2015, upstairs at Hopleaf at 7:30 pm. This 21-and-older event is free.
