I got my first Christmas card as a Media Specialist today. It was from a guest author that I set up a visit with at the beginning of the year. His name is David M. Sargent and he writes books about his dogs. He brought his dogs with him when he came to visit and oh. my. word. EVERYONE loved him! He even had the teachers hooked. He talked about his dogs inspired his stories and how anyone could be an author by writing about things they know...like their pets. For my first guest author visit, I think it was a success. Here are a few pictures from his visit.
We made a banner to welcome Mr. Sargent and his furry friends.

It really was a great time. If you are interested in having Mr. Sargent come visit your school, email me and I'll send you the deets. jnase1 (at) gmail (dot) com
