Are you a fan of Hoot or Chomp? The LRJ Foundation offers this year renown writer Carl Hiaason, one of Vero’s own, for a very special Teen Writers Workshop.
Carl Hiaasen was born and raised in Florida, where he still lives with his family. A graduate of the University of Florida, at age 23 he joined The Miami Herald as a general assignment reporter and went on to work for the newspaper’s weekly magazine and prize-winning investigations team where he annoyed editors and gleaned material for his many best-selling novels.
Hiaasen is the author of several popular novels for young readers: Hoot, which won a Newbery Honor, Flush, Scat and, most recently, Skink – No Surrender, which introduces one of the wildest characters in his adult books to a teen audience.
The film version of Hoot came out in 2006. It was directed by Wil Shriner, and produced by Jimmy Buffett and Frank Marshall.
