We had the honor of meeting author Alex Gino this week! They told us about the thought & hard work that goes into writing a book; it took them twelve years to write George/Melissa's Story! They also talked about the importance of creating mirrors for children, that every child should be able to find characters like them in the books they read. Our fourth graders did such an incredible job of asking thoughtful questions. We felt so lucky to spend the afternoon with a favorite author! Alex was truly inspiring!!!
