Visiting Connecticut Elementary Schools...

Stephanie and Jess presenting at Pomperaug Elementary School
We had a wonderful time visiting with students at Connecticut elementary schools to talk about our experience co-authoring The Secret Files of Fairday Morrow. A special thank you to the librarians, teachers, and faculty who helped create an inspiring experience for all who attended. The students we spoke to were amazing, and we can't wait to see the artwork from those entering Fairday's drawing contest. Happy reading (and drawing)! 

~ Stephanie and Jess

Here are some of the highlights of our adventure...

  10. Jess & Stephanie, this looks like so much fun... the children seem to be totally enjoying their time with you. I like hearing that reading is being encouraged in schools as I find less n less children are reading. I look foward to all the pictures ♡
