Author Visits

Author Presentations

Each year students and teachers have the opportunity to meet children’s authors and illustrators. Storytellers may also be invited. At their presentations, they usually talk to the students about their books, the steps involved in the writing process (which parallels the writing process the students are taught) and the steps in the actual publishing of a book. Illustrators often "wow" the students by doing several "quick sketches". Students eagerly await these special visitors and are motivated to write and to read the books of these very talented people.

Over the past few years the following authors and illustrators have visited our school district:

Steven Kroll
Todd Strasser
Loreen Leedy
Natalie Kinsey-Warnock
Tedd Arnold
Kate Waters
