Katherine Applegate Event Cancelled

Sad news, but our Wednesday author visit with Katherine Applegate has been cancelled due to illness.  Here's hoping for a speedy recovery for her!  All books which were purchased will be signed by her as soon as she is able to sign and return them to us.  We thank you for your patience in advance!

Hello 2015!

As we welcome the start of the New Year, we also welcome two authors to our Lower School Library.  Once again, thank you, Powell's!

I am happy to share the good news of our 4th (Yes, our 4th!) author visit this year.  On January 28th at 10:00am, Newbery Winner for "The One and Only Ivan" (a current OBOB title), Katherine Applegate, will present to 3-5th graders.  Even if your student will not be attending, I wanted to let you know of the event and that we are selling books through Powell's for her visit if you would like to purchase a copy which she will sign.  

We also will welcome National Geographic photographer and author of the "Unlikely Friendship" books, Jennifer Holland to our Lower School Library for our 5th author visit on February 5th at 12pm for our Primary-2nd graders. Again, this visit is made possible through our working relationship with Powell's.  She will be accompanied by a llama (!).  Pre-order forms for the books will be available in mid-January.

Another notable event is the culmination of our OBOB work.  Teams from 4th and 5th grade will battle on February 10th beginning at 12pm.  The winner will represent OES at the regional battle on March 7th.
