Award-winning novelist, screenwriter, and television writer

True Lit welcomes award-winning novelist Neal Shusterman. Neal Shusterman is the New York Times best-selling author of over thirty novels for children, teens, and adults.  He won the 2015 National Book Award for Young People’s Literature for Challenger Deep-and his novel, Scythe, was a 2017 Michael L. Printz Honor book, and is in development with Universal Studios as a feature film.  His novel, Unwind, has become part of the literary canon in many school districts across the country-and has won more than thirty domestic and international awards. Shusterman is currently co-writing the pilot episode of Netflix’s adaption of his “timely, speculative thought experiment in perspective, privilege, and identity” (Kirkus Reviews), Game Changer, while his harrowing tale of survival, Dry, is in development at Paramount Pictures. His most recent addition to the Arc of the Scythe series, Gleanings, has been called “One for the legions of fans of this world” by Kirkus Reviews. 

Shusterman has also received awards from organizations such as the International Reading Association, and the American Library Association, and has garnered a myriad of state and local awards across the country. His talents range from film directing, to writing music and stage plays, and has even tried his hand at creating games.

Pearl’s Books will be on-site to sell books, and a signing will follow the presentation. 

This event is first-come, first-served. No registration is required.

The True Lit Festival is in collaboration with the Fayetteville Public Schools, Fayetteville Public Education Foundation, Walton Arts Center, University of Arkansas Program in Creative Writing and Translation and Altrusa International of Fayetteville, Arkansas.
