Wow, where do I start? Jon Scieszka and Mac Barnett came to our school! As I was standing in the back of the multi-purpose room watching their presentation, I suddenly had a moment of "Wow! These guys are at my school!"
They arrived an hour early and had a nice Togos lunch waiting for them. And also some ninja bread men cookies that I had made.
Mr. Scieszka spoke first. He shared many stories from his childhood growing up with 4 brothers, including how his brother Greg broke his collar bone 5 times. Then Mr. Barnett took a turn and ended up on an extended rant about Scooby and Scrappy Doo. They took some questions from the students but the students were eager to hear about their new book Battle Bunny.
After the presentation, students were able to get their books signed and talk to the authors.
Hicklebee's Children's Bookstore for their next appearance.
I'd like to thank Miss Valerie and Miss Katherine of Hicklebee's for giving Marshall Lane the opportunity to host these fabulous authors. It makes me so happy that our students were able to experience this.
I'd also like to thank all my wonderful library volunteers who covered the library at lunch time and helped keep the event running smoothly and especially Miss Ronda who set up the sound system, directed traffic in the multi-purpose room and got Miss Katherine out of the parking lot.
And finally, I'd like to thank Mrs. Spencer, our principal, for organizing lunch and giving up her parking space.
