Scholastic announces 'Worlds Collide' Initiative

Today, Scholastic announces Worlds Collide, an exciting new initiative bringing together authors and fans of The 39 Clues, Infinity Ring, and Spirit Animals. Check out more details about this campaign in Publishers Weekly.

The virtual experience on the Worlds Collide online hub is amazing, but it’s only getting bigger and better.

During the month of April, fans will have special access to tons of new content, creating the ultimate online experience. Mash-ups where book characters and story lines will cross paths, writing tips from editors, videos and behind-the-scenes access to authors are just a few of the awesome digital experiences kids will have.

Along with these online experiences, Scholastic will also be bringing authors and readers together. Literally. We introduce you to the most epic events of the year: the Worlds Collide #1s Live Tour.

Superstar authors James Dashner (Infinity Ring #1: A Mutiny in Time), Gordon Korman (The 39 Clues Cahills vs Vespers #1: The Medusa Plot), Brandon Mull (Spirit Animals #1: Wild Born), and Jude Watson (The 39 Clues Unstoppable #1: Nowhere to Run) will headline a multi-city tour across the U.S.

The tour kicks off on April 22nd with events in Seattle, Washington; Houston, Texas; Chicago, Illinois; and concluding with an event in Exeter, New Hampshire, featuring special guest Rick Riordan, Maze of Bones author and series architect for The 39 Clues series.
