We are very excited to have Daniel Wallace as our guest speaker. Mr. Wallace is the author of “Big Fish” and several other excellent books.

This will be a great event to support literacy education in Chatham County.

Daniel Wallace
Daniel Wallace is the author of five novels, including “Big Fish” (1998), “Ray in Reverse” (2000), “The Watermelon King” (2003), “Mr. Sebastian and the Negro Magician” (2007), and most recently “The Kings and Queens of Roam” (2013).  His children’s book, published in 2014, and for which he did both the words and the pictures, is called “The Cat’s Pajamas,” and it is absolutely adorable.

In 2003 “Big Fish” was adapted and released as a major movie. In 2013 the book and the movie were mish-mashed together and became a Broadway musical. His novels have been translated into over two dozen languages.

Daniel Wallace is the J. Ross MacDonald Distinguished Professor of English at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, his alma mater, where he directs the Creative Writing Program. His son is a rising senior at UNC-W, and his daughter is an artist in Baltimore. He lives in Chapel Hill with his wife, Laura Kellison Wallace.

You can read an interview with Mr. Wallace here. More information about him, his writing, and his illustrations can be found at and

Mr. Wallace promised a fun talk. He will sign books afterward. McIntyre’s Books will donate to Chatham Literacy 20% of the sale on all of Mr. Wallace’s books. You can buy his books in-store now or at the event.
