Gearing Up for 2 (count 'em, 2) Author Visits

Next week will be a busy one for our 4th and 5th graders.  Monday morning, thanks to Children's Place, we will be amused and enlightened by a visit from Stephan Pastis.  We had several lucky winners of some choice Timmy Failure "swag" which they earned by completing a Timmy Failure quiz.

We also will have a virtual author visit with Thanhha Lai, author of the National Book Award winner,
Inside Out and Back Again on Thursday.  It is also a 2014 OBOB title as well and one of my favorite books within the past year.  Written in poetry form, it captures the story of Ha as she escapes from Vietnam with her family and experiences the challenge of being different in Alabama in 1975.
