Radnor Middle School Welcomes Author Alexander London


Popular young adult author C. Alexander London, aka Alex London, visited Radnor Middle School on Sept. 25 to share his books, his process, and his journey from reluctant reader to eager author with students in grades 6-8.

London's day-long visit began with two assemblies in the school's auditorium followed by a Writing Workshop, "The Good, the Bad, and the AWESOME: Creating Characters That Come Alive," for 25 select students in the school's library.

London is the author of over 25 books for children, teens, and adults, with over 2 million copies sold. For middle grade readers, he’s the author of the Dog Tags, Tides of War, Wild Ones, and Accidental Adventures series, as well as two titles in the 39 Clues series. For young adults, he’s the author of the cyberpunk duology Proxy and the epic fantasy Black Wings Beating. He’s been a journalist reporting from conflict zones and refugee camps, a young adult librarian with New York Public Library, an assistant to a Hollywood film agent, and a snorkel salesman. He lives with his family in Philadelphia, PA.

This visit was organized by RMS librarian Catherine Horan and sponsored by the Cultural Arts Committee of the Radnor Middle School parent-teacher organization. To learn more about Alex London, visit
