Crowdcast Event - Registration Required
#1 New York Times bestselling author Alan Gratz (Refugee; Ground Zero) is back, tackling the urgent topic of climate change in this breathtaking, action-packed novel that will keep readers turning pages while making their own plans to better the world.
Fire. Ice. Flood. Three climate disasters.
Four kids fighting for their lives.
Akira is riding her horse in the California woods when a wildfire sparks--and grows scarily fast. How can she make it to safety when there are flames everywhere?
Owen and his best friend, George, like spotting polar bears on the snowy Canadian tundra. But when one bear gets way too close for comfort, do the boys have any chance of surviving?
Natalie hunkers down at home as a massive hurricane barrels toward Miami. When the floodwaters crash into her house, Natalie is dragged out into the storm--with nowhere to hide.
Akira, Owen, George, and Natalie are all swept up in the devastating effects of climate change. They are also connected in ways that will shock them--and could alter their destinies forever.
Thanks for joining Alan virtually and helping to celebrate the launch of Two Degrees! Alan loves to connect with schools, kids, and teachers, even if it’s through a screen from miles away!
Also, a special thanks to Left Bank Books for hosting and providing books to purchase! At any time before, during or after the presentation, you can click on the link in the lower part of the Crowdcast screen to visit their site and buy a book.
Go ahead and register for the event! A link to the broadcast will be emailed to you once you’re registered. Once you click on the link in the email, you'll go straight to the page where the broadcast will start. A valid e-mail address is required for security purposes, but your email will not be collected or saved for any other use.
We recommend using your first name and last initial when you register, especially for students. It means that your full name won't be displayed in the registered attendees section.
Crowdcast is similar to Zoom, but everyone doesn’t show up on the screen all at once. During the event, you’ll just see Alan and his presentation. The best way to watch and participate is on a computer. No download is required when watching on a computer; just click the link provided and watch the presentation in your browser. Google Chrome works best, but other browsers are supported. If you watch the event on a smartphone or tablet, you may not be able to ask questions unless you download the Crowdcast app in advance.
Format, Asking Questions, etc.
We will keep the chat turned off before, during, and after the presentation.
At the end of the presentation, we will open up the Q&A section, so that students and teachers can ask questions. If you're showing the presentation to an entire class at once, you may want to gather a few questions beforehand, so when it's time to type them into the Q&A section, you're ready!
With Crowdcast, there is an option to upvote a question by clicking the arrow to the left of it, so students can give a question more votes, making it more likely to be answered, rather than typing in the same question multiple times. Alan loves to answer questions, so, please prepare to type in questions and vote for those you most want to hear answered! Alan will answer as many questions as he can once the presentation is over.
Thanks again for joining us on this virtual adventure!
