Park Welcomes George O’Connor as Gordon Berman ’68 Memorial Lower School Resident Author


On Tuesday, April 17, best-selling graphic novelist George O’Connor joined the Park community as our Gordon Berman ’68 Memorial Lower School Resident Author.

O’Connor is the author of several picture books, including the New York Times bestseller Kapow!Kersplash and Sally and the Some-thing. His graphic novel series, THE OLYMPIANS, which he writes and illustrates, is an ongoing series retelling the classic Greek myths in comics form. With nine out of 12 volumes currently published, each volume stars a different Olympian god or goddess. 

The visit was full of excitement and intrigue for our Lower Schoolers. O’Connor presented in two different assemblies, held a drawing workshop for fifth graders, signed books for all ages, and answered many, many questions from our thoughtful and inquisitive students. We thank O’Connor for a wonderful day at Park!
