Maribeth Boelts

Tomorrow night at our school we are hosting a brand new event; Literacy Night for parents and students.  We will have four stations for everyone to listen to a "story time" come to life!  We are featuring A Bad case of stripes by David Shannon, the entire Fancy Nancy series (Nancy will "be with us"), nursery rhymes and Kate DiCamillo, focusing on her chapter books.  I will be doing a reading of The Magician's Elephant (click here for my review).  I am excited for tomorrow night because it is all about sharing books with our students, trying to get parents to do more reading at home-all good things-but I'm thrilled because we are hosting a real live local author!! 

Maribeth Boelts will be at our school from 6-7, talking to everyone about writing and reading and she will sign books after.  This should be a wonderful event for all involved.  I will try hard not to blabber and gush to much when I meet her.  I saw on her website she has a new blog-perhaps she will grant me an interview.
