Author Ben Levin Presents
The Follow Your Dreams Lecture Series
(For Students Grades 5-12)
Don’t be afraid to dream, embrace who you are, and writers change the world!
In The Follow Your Dreams Lecture Series, in three 30-minute talks author Ben Levin shares his journey as a young writer from three different perspectives. First, as a teen author who published his first novel, In the Hole, while still in high school. Second, as a writer-activist who cares deeply about the homeless crisis and spent many months researching with national experts on homelessness. Third, as an autistic individual, whose message of self-embrace and celebrating differences is as critical today as it has ever been.
Ben’s lectures are educational, heartfelt, and funny, and will engage students of every age.
Three Different & Unique Talks to Choose From!

“Writer as Activist: What I’ve Learned About Homelessness” (30 minutes)
