On April 18th, fourth and fifth graders had the opportunity to meet authors Karen Rivers and this year's Newbery winner, Kelly Barnhill. The authors talked about their writing process, the inspiration behind their many novels, and answered students' questions. They even took the time to sign personalized copies of their books. Students came away from the presentation with the recognition that even the smallest, seemingly silly idea can evolve into a full-blown (potentially award-winning) book! We are so thankful to Book People for partnering with us to provide this wonderful experience.
