Nathan Hale is the #1 New York Times bestselling author and illustrator of the Nathan Hale’s Hazardous Tales series, which is on the Texas Bluebonnet Award Master List. The books in the series, each illuminating an aspect of American history, include One Dead Spy; Donner Dinner Party; Treaties, Trenches, Mud and Blood; Big Bad Ironclad!; and The Underground Abductor. Kirkus Reviews praises the series as “an innovative approach to history that will have young people reading with pleasure.”

Hale comes to Houston to share his sixth book in the series, Alamo All-Stars. School Library Journal says, “Hale returns to history in sequential art format, this time tackling the Alamo. Vicente Guerrero, Davy Crockett, Jim Bowie, and Stephen F. Austin lead the titular ‘all-star’ cast in this tale of how an untamed land became Texas….With its balance of gifted storytelling and hard facts, this work will appeal to reluctant readers and fans of history alike. A must-have that will add value to any children’s graphic nonfiction collection.” Through vivid depiction and humor, along with additional maps, and biographies located in the back of the book, Hale brings new insight for students, teachers, and historians into one of the most iconic structures in the United States.

*Please note that the book signing will be conducted on a first-come, first-served basis. Upon entering the theater, people wishing to have books signed will be given a number, and the book signing will take place in numerical order after the on-stage presentation.
