Grade 6 students have the privilege of having local author, Robin Pawlak, come speak to them about his first novel and the writing process. Below is some information on Robin Pawlak and his novel, Space Cadets. Space Cadets is Robin Pawlak’s first novel. Published in January of 2018, it is currently available on Amazon. The second book in the series is scheduled to be released in the fall of 2019. After the presentation, interested students will have an opportunity to purchase a copy of Space Cadets ($12) and have it signed by the author. Below is a summary of Space Cadets: What if your imagination could take you anywhere? Literally. Twelve-year-old Simon loves to daydream—a little too much, according to his twin sister Casey, who prefers real-life adventures. She leads the two into their father’s workroom, which is strictly off limits, and they are zapped by their father’s mysterious invention. Afterward, exhausted and dazed, Simon imagines that he is flying a spaceship. Suddenly, he finds that he can no longer control the fantasy, and he and his sister end up stuck in space. For real. Simon and Casey are taken prisoner by the evil Gamnilians, an alien race bent on galactic domination. In jail they come across an unexpected ally in Geet, a fearful but clever little alien who wants exactly what they want: freedom, and to find a way home. The trio teams up to attempt a daring escape, leading to action-packed adventure filled with danger, friendship and lots of laughs. And finally, here's a bit more information about the author: Robin Pawlak was a teacher for 31 years in Red Deer. He had boatloads of fun with his students, but three decades is a long time, so he decided to retire to something a little quieter. Nowadays, he spends most of his time in his office, making stuff up and muttering to himself. Some say this is a sure sign that all that time with children drove him mad. This may be true. But if a guy writes his imaginings down, he can call himself an author, which is a somewhat more respectable title than lunatic. If you visit robinpawlak.com, you’ll find even more of Robin’s madness on display, including short stories for children (ages 8-108) and some Space Cadets bonus material.
