Award-Winning Children's Author to visit FKES! - Tuesday, March 6th, 7-8:30pm (All-Purpose Room)
Award-winning author Chris Barton presents: "Write What You'd Love to Learn." He will talk about his work as an author of both fiction and nonfiction children's books. He'll also read one of his books and then use it as a jumping-off point for an age-appropriate discussion of research and/or revision. There will also be time for audience questions and (tentatively) book sales for anyone who wants to get an autographed copy. All Forest Knolls students and their families are encouraged to attend! http://www.chrisbarton.info/
