SCOTCH PLAINS/FANWOOD, NJ -- New York Times bestselling author, illustrator and cartoonist George O'Connor will be this year's author visitor at Terrill Middle School on Monday, March 18, 2019. 
O'Connor is a Greek mythology buff and a classic superhero comics fan. His mission is to remind us how much today's pantheon of superheroes (Superman, Batman, the X-Men, etc.) owes to mankind's original superheroes: the Greek gods. His best-selling OLYMPIANS series retells classic Greek myths in comics form.

O'Connor draws from primary documents to reconstruct and retell the classic tales. The stories are not scholarly works; they're action-packed, fast-paced, high-drama adventures, with monsters, romance, and not a few huge explosions.

During his visit, the author will sign books for the Terrill staff and students. The school will not be doing a preorder. If you would like him to sign a book for your child, please purchase one on your own. (It will be signed on the day of Mr. O'Connor’s visit.) Books are available for purchase on,, and other booksellers.
