We are so happy that in person author visits are back! Author visits not only inspire our students, they also lend credibility to the reading and writing process!
Dater Student enjoyed learning the "secrets of a story sandwich" from visiting author, Melanie Conklin.
Melanie Conklin, author of Every Missing Piece, explains to Dater students how much hard work and revising goes into the creation of a book.
"Some people look for reasons why they can't do something. I look for reasons why I can." Great author visit and message from Jerry Craft, author of New Kid, the first graphic novel to win the Newberry medal.
Jerry Craft spent time signing books, speaking with students, giving a drawing demonstration, and imparting inspiration to all. Thank you Smith PTO for making this opportunity possible!
