In this episode, the Thalia Kids' Book Club tackles the work of popular comic artist Lincoln Peirce. His work The Big Nate Series stars another comic book artist, the fictional 11-year-old Big Nate, occasional troublemaker and self-declared genius. According to Thalia Kids' tradition, Lincoln Peirce also leads the audience in a fun and original creative writing exercise as well as an in-depth Q and A. Emcee Matthew Cody is friendly and relatable. He proves to be a great combination with Lincoln Peirce!
The cartoonist and best-selling author of the Big Nate books gives a behind-the-scenes look at his funny and clever middle-grade series and comic strip (published in over 250 newspapers), which follows a spunky self-described genius on an unforgettable trail through the sixth grade in a comic book-style diary.
