Author Michael Di Martino: Rebel Genius

by

comment

Author and animation director Michael Di Martino had a loyal following even before his debut prose work, Rebel Genius, hit shelves thanks to another storyline he helped create: the animated series Avatar: The Last Airbender. During its five-year run on Nickelodeon, Avatar racked up a host of awards for its stellar animation, genius storyboarding and cast of quirky characters, including a Primetime Emmy, multiple Annie Awards, a Genesis Award and a Kids' Choice Award. Now, Di Martino has channeled his storytelling prowess into a children's/young adult fantasy series full of magic and mystery, where "art is powerful, dangerous, and outlawed" and the physical manifestations of genius can land their creators in serious trouble. Stop by Rediscovered Books on Thursday, Jan. 11, to meet Di Martino, grab a book and embark on his latest fantastical adventure.
