Authors Visit Prairie

MS Book Club Field Trip

During this past month, some middle school girls had the opportunity to meet with J. A. White, the author of the new series The Thickety. He discussed his background, creative process, and new books. Jerry also answered all kinds of questions from our "funny and amazing students" and has plans to visit us at Prairie next year. His book has recently been optioned by Dreamworks. The book club is currently reading The Thickety and Cinder by Marissa Meyer. If you have any interest in the books, please click on the title links. Next month, the book club will be participating in a Skype meeting with Mr. White; please let me know if you would like to join us.
