Visiting Author

Dear ALT Community,

I am thrilled to announce that the visiting author for this year will be Melissa Sweet.  Melissa is the author and illustrator of many wonderful books, and is the most award winning author we have ever hosted.  She has won two Caldecott Honor Medals and two Sibert Medals!  You can check out her books and the awards they have won by visiting her website:  Melissa will be visiting ALT on Wednesday, May 1, 2019, and her visit is sure to be a highlight in the year for ALT!

We are incredibly fortunate at ALT, for not only does the ALT PTO fund the author’s visit each year, but they also purchase one of the visiting author’s books for each child in the school!  Melissa will personally sign each book, so these will be tremendous keepsakes for your children.  The following books have been ordered for each grade level:

Kindergarten:  Little Red Writing

1st Grade:  Little Red Writing

2nd Grade:  The Drawing Book

3rd Grade:  The Drawing Book

4th Grade:  The Drawing Book

5th Grade:  The Right Word

If you would like to purchase additional books by Melissa Sweet on your own, we would be happy to have her sign them for you.  Just send them in (by April 30th) with a note of the names to whom they should be signed, and we'll make sure you get them back after her visit!
