Buchanan will discuss and sign his novel, which he adapted into a screenplay with his writing partner Diane Lang, and will also talk about the movie made from it. The book provides a powerful, but entertaining view of high school life as seen through the eyes of an obese, bullied 9th grader. It has won several national awards, including National Parenting Publication’s Gold Award and Mom’s Choice Award of Excellence. The movie was named “Best Feature” in the Central Florida Film Fest, “Audience Favorite” at the Williamsburg NY Festival, and “Best Feature Runner-Up” at the Inspirational Festival in Houston.
