Kenneth Oppel Young adult author Kenneth Oppel will pay a visit to the 7th and 8th graders at RDMS on September 22, kicking off another year of fun and learning in the Library!
 
Mr. Oppel will present his latest novel - This Dark Endeavor - which explains the teenage years of Victor Frankenstein and the otherworldy circumstances that led him to his later infamous endeavor, creating one of the world's best known monsters. You know who that is, right? The one with the flat head, the clunky shoes, funny walk and bolts in his neck? This Dark Endeavor already has been optioned for a major motion picture by the producers of the Twilight movies! And RDMS is one of first stops on this exciting book tour! How can this happen, you ask? That's just how we roll at the RDMS Library!
 
Here is a picture of the book's cover. Be sure to visit Mr. Oppel's web site, where you can learn about This Dark Endeavor and his other wonderful books, learn about how he started writing, or even email him to tell him how excited you are that he will be coming to your school!
