Jennifer Nielsen – December 11th
Grade 5 is in for a special reading treat with a virtual author’s visit from one of ASIJ’s favorite visiting authors on December 11th at 10:50. I don’t know any author who can write such compelling historical fiction, adventure and dystopian novels. Quite frankly, when I read The False Prince several years ago, it became my favorite adventure of all time! I am honored that Jennifer is so graciously giving up an evening to do a virtual author’s visit with our students.
