The talk:

Batman's Biggest Secret

"Wow—incredible! An inspiration—absolutely gripping story everyone should hear."
—attendee, Charlotte S. Huck Children's Literature Festival, CA

In 1939, a writer co-created a character that would become one of the most successful fictional icons in world history. In 1974, he died poor and unknown to the public. In 2015, defying longstanding odds, and involving not one but three twists, his legacy was saved...thanks to one author's unprecedented campaign to correct cultural history.

This story has surprised and moved audiences from Tanzania to Thailand—even those who could not care less about superheroes. It has inspired multiple books, a TED talk, an NPR segment...and something bigger. You haven't heard a story like it...

"I feel like I just watched Rocky for the first time."
