On Friday, September 28, Elmbrook hosted best-selling authors Tom Watson and John Flanagan.
Acclaimed Author/Illustrator Tom Watson of the Stick Dog and Stick Cat series visited Brookfield Elementary and presented to an audience of 300 students. Watson shared his journey as an author, created an interactive drawing and answered student questions, before conducting a book signing with students. His latest book Stick Cat: Two Cats and a Baby was released on September 25.
Across town, #1 New York Times bestselling author John Flanagan visited Pilgrim Park Middle School to promote his latest book The Red Fox Clan. Flanagan discussed his writing and creative processes, answered questions from students, and signed books with students and staff. His latest book in the Ranger's Apprentice series was released on August 21.
The events were sponsored by Elmbrook community partner, Boswell Books, at no cost to the district. This school year, numerous award-winning authors are scheduled to visit the district as a continuation of our joint-initiative to engage students in reading and writing.
