Tom Watson Author Visit- February 5th

Recently we had an incredible visit with Tom Watson, author of Stick Dog. During the presentation Tom showed the kids how he drew Stick Dog. He had them draw along with him. We also loved Tom’s jokes!

We added almost 50 Stick Dog books to the collection. They don’t stay on the shelves!

Big thanks to Avid Bookshop and Tom Watson for making this visit happen!

Two Amazing Author Visits

We had two amazing author visits this past semester!

Lois Ruby, author of The Doll Graveyard and other Oglethorpe faves, came and led a writing workshop with our fifth graders in September!  It was amazing!

 

Later that month, author and illustrator Ben Hatke came and spoke with our 3rd and 4th graders.  He spoke to us about how he creates his graphic novels and picture books, which include the Zita the Spacegirl series and Mighty Jack!
