On Thursday, September 29th we were delighted to host author Julie Dao for all of our 4th and 5th grade students. Ms. Dao shared her writing process and gave our learners important tips to be successful writers. You should ask them about why lots of “eyeballs” are important! The event was sponsored by local bookstore Bards Alley and Macmillan Children’s Publishing Group. Copies of Ms. Dao’s book Team Chu and the Battle of Blackwood Arena were given to the library and our 4th and 5th grade classroom libraries. We are grateful for local community partnerships.
