Authors in April

Van Hoosen will be hosting Authors in April on Thursday, April 21. All students will get to hear a great presentation by author Margi Preus. Students have been reading her books in their LA classes in preparation for this great event. Ms. Preus will also take part in a luncheon and writer's workshop with students who applied to participate. Lastly, all 8th graders who bring their AIA book will have an opportunity to meet Ms. Preus while getting their book signed in person! It is sure to be a great day!
