Upcoming Author Visits @ Walker

From Ms. Hertel:

Walker Families,
Perspectives: A Shared Author Experience, is a program funded by Foundation 65 that brings children’s authors to District 65 schools.  The Perspectives program allows District 65 students and families to view issues from multiple perspectives, and see themselves represented in the authors, the author’s life experiences, and the stories they tell.

Over the course of one week (Oct 24 – 28th), five amazing authors will be visiting Walker and D65 schools and speaking with specific grade levels.

On the evening of October 24th, all authors will be present for an author panel, hosted by Foundation 65 and the Evanston Public Library – this community event is free and open to the public!

Matt de la Pena – 7th and 8th Graders
Steve Sheinkin – 5th and 6th Graders
Grace Lin – 4th and 2nd Graders
Duncan Tonatiuh – 3rd Grade
Janice Harrington – K and 1st Grade

For more information about this amazing program see the attached flyer,  visit Foundation 65’s website foundation65.org or ask me!
