Tim Green was a star defensive player for the NFL Atlanta Falcons for eight years. While playing football, not only did Tim study law, he began to explore his love of writing. In addition to publishing numerous bestselling books for adults, in 2007 Tim published his first book for middle-graders, Football Genius, which became an instant New York Times bestseller. Other books followed, all set in the world of sports, based on his experiences on the field and as a coach. Beloved by young readers, his books include Football Hero, Football Camp, Pinch Hit, Unstoppable, New Kid, Kid Owner, and others. Critics have called his books “timeless,” “heroic,” and “engrossing.”
Mr. Green comes to Houston to share his latest middle-grade book, Left Out, published in September. The novel’s protagonist, Landon Dorch, is bigger and taller than all the other seventh graders and he hopes he can use this to his advantage to make the football team as well as make friends. Because he is also deaf, people continue to keep their distance and do not get to know the real Landon. Left Out is delightfully action-packed and takes readers through Landon’s journey of changing the way others see him, on and off the field.
*Please note that the post-event meet and greet will be conducted on a first-come, first-served basis. Upon entering the theater, people wishing to meet Tim Green and have photos taken with him will be given a number and then after the presentation, will be called up in numerical order.
