I am thrilled to be joining USA Today on September 17th for a LIVE storytelling event to benefit No Kid Hungry. Learn how you can be in the virtual audience for this special event by clicking here!
Krosoczka will share his personal story with a national audience at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT Sept. 17 as part of the Storytellers Project’s virtual show, “School Stories,” a benefit for No Kid Hungry. The Storytellers Project, part of the USA TODAY Network, produces shows in 20 cities across the United States, but pivoted to virtual shows in April because of stay-at-home orders.
Because of the pandemic, this year, one in four students are expected to face food insecurity, up from one in seven last year, according to No Kid Hungry.

The entire middle school lined the hallways and greeted me while wearing T-shirts emblazoned with quotes from my books—all while the Star Wars theme blared. What an astounding way to start the day!
That face you make when you walk in to your school visit and you’re blasted with the Star Wars theme and a few hundred cheering students lining the halls between the front door and the auditorium. Thank you for that incredibly warm welcome, Clinton Middle School! 📸 by @SarahGaetano1 on Twitter.

The Odyssey Award is given to the producer of the best audiobook produced for children and/or young adults, available in English in the United States. The award is jointly given and administered by the Association for Library Service to Children (ALSC) and the Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA), divisions of ALA, and is sponsored by Booklist.
Paul Gagne of Scholastic Audiobooks is the reason why HEY, KIDDO was put forward for an audio adaptation. We rolled up our sleeves together trying to figure out how to tell the visual story in an auditory way. I wish we had cameras following us the entire time because the story behind the story would have made for an incredible documentary filled with so many ups and downs and emotional breakthroughs—and ultimately an Odyssey Award win!
