On Tuesday, April 17 Peter Lerangis an author came to Aeolian. He told us he lived in New York, he told us what it’s like over at New York, what he does, and showed us where he works. When he was young he use to read a lot, as a teenager he read comic books and tried to write comic books, and as an adult he wrote books. One of his famous books is The 39 Clues, a series. In the book 39 Clues there were other authors that wrote part of the series of 39 Clues. Then he told us what's 39 Clues about. 39 Clues is about these two kids that travel all around the world through time to find 39 clues to reveal their powerful history. My favorite part was when he told us his trip to Russia because he met the president. I learned to work hard and never give up.
