Author Visit to Brawerman East and Brawerman West Schools in Los Angeles
Last week I enjoyed visits to Brawerman East and Brawerman West Elementary Schools in Los Angeles as part of their Celebration of Reading. At both schools I spoke to children in kindergarten through third grades and had very enthusiastic audiences with lots of excellent questions at the end of my presentation. At Brawerman West I was treated to a room full of students all dressed up as their favorite characters from a fiction book of children’s literature. Even the teachers wore costumes. I thank librarian Karen Morgenstern (who was dressed as the Queen from Snow White, complete with a real apple!) for inviting me to Brawerman West and doing such a good job of preparing the students for my visit. At Brawerman East I thank librarian Crystal Noe for reading my books to the students before my visit and Rosie Barajas and Principal Gillian Feldman for making sure that everything ran smoothly. I thank the Susan Isaacson, Assistant Principal for arranging my visit. It was the perfect final event for a full week of Celebrating Reading!
