We are very excited to announce three upcoming author visits as we start the school year. We will first welcome Judy Schachner of Skippyjon Jones fame on September 17th who will meet with our K and Primary Students. She will share her newest book Dewey Bob. On September 24, our 3-5th graders will get the opportunity to listen to graphic novelist Ben Hatke. Both Ms. Schachner's and Mr. Hatke's visit come to us from Powell's Books and we offer the opportunity to pre-order books for the visit. Pre-orders are entirely optional and Ms. Schachner's pre-orders will be due Friday, September 11th (this week!). Mr. Hatke's pre-orders will be due by Friday, September 14th.
The power duo of author Mac Barnett and illustrator Christian Robinson will visit on October 2nd thanks to Green Bean Books and will present to grades K-2. Their latest book, Leo: a Ghost Story, is extra special and will be the focus of their talk. Again, pre-orders will be available through Green Bean Books and will be due Friday, September 14th.
Also, bring in those summer reading forms!
