This will be our traditional celebration with the author/illustrator visit in the morning, while the afternoon is reserved to pay tribute to our “local” Lower School TLS authors and illustrators as they read their books to their families and friends. Refreshments will be served. Our visiting author’s books will be available for purchase, and Ms. Deedy will be available for book signings throughout the afternoon.
