Derf Backderf on My Friend Dahmer #14
Date: Sunday, April 28
Derf Backderf is the author of critically acclaimed, original graphic novel, My Friend Dahmer. Backderf, a high school classmate Jeffery Dahmer’s, gives a unique perspective on the notorious serial killer. To the public, Dahmer was a monster who committed unthinkable atrocities. To Backderf, he was “Jeff,” a high school friend with whom he had shared classrooms, hallways and car rides. Using a combination of his own memories and journals, conversations with old friends, and Dahmer’s interviews and transcripts, writer-artist Backderf unveils a surprisingly sympathetic portrait of a disturbed young man–a shy kid, a teenage alcoholic, and a misfit who never quite fit in with his classmates–struggling against the morbid urges emanating from the deep recesses of his psyche.

In July 1992, Scholastic introduced a monthly book series by R.L. Stine called Goosebumps: Welcome to the Dead House. Twenty years later, Goosebumps is now one of the best-selling children’s series of all-time—with more than 300 million books sold in 32 languages. The Goosebumps series made R.L.

Aimed at kids ages 8–12, Goosebumps was a phenomenon. Goosebumps Most Wanted is the latest line of Goosebumps books by author R.L.
