Gork, the Teenage Dragon by GABE HUDSON

Harvard Book Store welcomes Sue Kaufman Prize–winning author GABE HUDSON, author of Dear Mr. President, for a discussion of his latest novel Gork, the Teenage Dragon.  HUDSON’s novel is wacky, exuberant, and a heartfelt debut: the unholy child of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, Harry Potter, and Sixteen Candles— but, this time, with dragons.

Gork isn’t like the other dragons at WarWings Military Academy. He has a gigantic heart, two-inch horns, and an occasional problem with fainting. His nickname is ‘Weak Sauce’ and his Will to Power ranking is Snacklicious—the lowest in his class. But he is determined not to let any of this hold him back as he embarks on the most important mission of his life: tonight, on the eve of his high school graduation, he must ask a female dragon to be his queen. If she says yes, they’ll go off to conquer a foreign planet together. If she says no, Gork becomes a slave.

This book will be for sale at the event for 20% off.  There will also be a signing after the event.

No tickets required for entry.
