Appearing Frida and Saturday

Soman Chainani’s debut series, THE SCHOOL FOR GOOD & EVIL, has sold over 4 million copies, been translated into 35 languages across six continents, and has been adapted into a major motion picture from Netflix that debuted at #1 in over 80 countries.

His book of retold fairytales, BEASTS & BEAUTY, also debuted on the New York Times Bestseller List, his seventh book in a row to do so, and is slated to be a limited television series from Sony 3000, with Soman writing and executive producing. Together, his books have been on the New York Times Bestseller List for 50 weeks.

His latest novels, RISE and FALL OF THE SCHOOL FOR GOOD & EVIL, tell a new story in his EverNever World universe, a decade-long franchise of fairy tales and fantasy.

A graduate of Harvard University and Columbia University’s MFA Film Program, Soman has been nominated for the Waterstone Prize for Children’s Literature, been named to the Out100, and also received the Sun Valley Writer’s Fellowship.

In his career, Soman has visited more than 800 schools around the world, where he continues to share his secret with students of all ages: that reading is the path to a better life.
