Newberry Award winning author, Avi, visited Willard Intermediate School today. He shared about his journey becoming an author while encouraging students to be veracious readers. He offered words of wisdom and humor to students to think about their writing and how to write for other readers. Avi came to Willard thanks to the efforts of Mrs. Staley at the Intermediate School and Mrs. Roth for submitting a winning proposal for the author visit through the Greene County Friends of the Library. In order for our students to attend a visit with Avi, they had to read and review one of his books then submit a book cover for that story giving a summary and author biography. It was a great day and our students really enjoyed meeting and learning from this award-winning author.
