Author Chris Healy Visits Seth Boyden

Local author Christopher Healy visited a receptive audience of third- to fifth-graders at Seth Boyden on March 8 to talk about reading, writing, and his popular children's adventure book trilogy, The League of Princes.  The first book in Healy's series, The Hero's Guide to Saving Your Kingdom (2012), is a Kirkus Reviews Best Young Adult Book Winner and a New York Times Notable Winner, and all three books have been very well-reviewed; Kirkus Reviews described the last installment, The Hero's Guide to Being an Outlaw (2015), as “part screwball comedy, part sly wit, and all fun.”  Healy’s assembly was part of the Seth Boyden Read-A-Thon, a school-wide event that will run through April 5.
