Author Michael Finklea with KidsWe are having an author visit on Monday, February 4th. His name is Michael Finklea, and he will be talking about the writing process (the importance of outlining and organizing your story, and how writing your story one time is never expected; you need to revise your story and improve it to make it better/more interesting), where to get ideas for stories, the importance of persevering, the publishing process, and how you can be an author at any age. He will also share his personal story about growing up with Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD), and the challenges he had to overcome to stay focused. You can find out more information about him at his website:

If students want to purchase any of his books, they can fill out the order form the received from their teacher and bring it (along with their check/money) with them on Monday. There will be a book signing after his presentation, where Michael Finklea will sign his books for anyone who wants them. Additional order forms will be available on the day of the author visit for anyone who forgot their form/didn't fill it out ahead of time.
