2018 Garden State Book Awards Luncheon

Marc Tyler Nobleman is the author of 70+ children’s books, and his keynote will focus on Bill the Boy Wonder: The Secret Co-Creator of Batman, an edge-of-your-seat detective story revealing secrets uncovered and mysteries solved while researching nonfiction picture books on the creators of Superman and Batman—engaging even for those who couldn't care less about superheroes! The Batman book helped correct a longstanding cultural injustice, and this presentation vividly shows how children's literature can bring about significant real-world change. His book inspired a Hulu documentary and a TED talk. Marc recently screened his documentary, Batman & Bill, at the American Association of School Librarians (AASL) conference in Phoenix, AZ this past November. In December of 2017, New York City, inspired by his book/film, renamed a street for a superhero creator. This story never ends!
