I am so excited about all of the authors that are headed to Decatur this fall! It's a long list, so settle in and prepared to mark some dates on your calendar. We will start with some must-see authors at the Decatur Book Festival, and then move on from there...
But wait! That's not all....some superstars are coming later in the fall. Check it out and click on each picture for more information about these incredible authors and how to buy tickets for their events.
August is an exciting time for Decatur when it comes to reading! On Friday, August 30th, F.AVE will host two author visits for all of our students. This year, we are so lucky to welcome 3 incredible authors! Kelly Barnhill, Newbery Award winner for The Girl Who Drank the Moon, will be visiting our 5th graders, and 3rd/4th graders will get a visit from 2 authors from the Rick Riordan Presents imprint: J.C. Cervantes and Atlanta's own Roshani Chokshi! J.C. Cervantes is the author of The Storm Runner series and Roshani Chokshi writes the Aru Shah series.
Thank you so much to the Decatur Education Foundation and Little Shop of Stories for providing us with these wonderful author visits.
If your child would like to order a copy or copies of these author's books so that they may meet them and get them signed, order forms went home in Monday communication folders on August 5th. You can also find the forms attached to this blog or on the media center website. If you already own a copy of any of these books, you are welcome to bring in your own copy to be signed. However, if you order from us, the F.AVE media center will receive 20% of the price.
