Our 2nd - 5th graders were treated to a special visit with author/ illustrator, Jarrett Krosoczka on January 30. Students learned his process for creating his popular series "Lunch Lady" and about how persistent he had to be to get his early picture books published. He showed us the first book he wrote and illustrated in 3rd grade and answered students' questions with enthusiasm.
We are so grateful to the BEF and, specifically, The Saker Fund, for funding and organizing this visit.
If you'd like MORE of Jarrett Krosoczka, he'll be at the Main Library in Brookline Village on Thursday, February 15th! He will be presenting a workshop to 75 students -- for more information, see the library's website: https://www.brooklinelibrary.org/events/event/hold-for-brookline-eats-author-visit/ Registration is required for this event and based on students' reaction to his visit, I'd say you should register early!
