An edge-of-your-seat detective story about one author's 9-year campaign to correct a 76-year-old cultural injustice involving one of the most iconic fictional characters of all time, Batman. The story is riveting even for those who couldn't care less about superheroes. It inspired the book Bill the Boy Wonder, a TED Talk, and the unprecedented feature documentary Batman & Bill. This presentation vividly shows how children's literature can bring about significant real-world change BEYOND a love of reading. It has elicited raves (and sometimes tears) among students and teachers from Tanzania to Thailand. Do NOT read about it in advance...you will want to hear each startling twist live!
