Visiting Author

Dear ALT Community, 

I am thrilled to announce that the visiting author for this year will be Dan Gutman.  Dan Gutman is easily the most read author our library, and he is the only author that I invite back every seven years so that every single student who goes through ALT has the chance to meet him.  Dan will be visiting ALT on Friday, January 31, 2020, and his visit is sure to be a highlight of 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!  Dan 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:  Rappy Goes to the Library

1st Grade:  Rappy Goes to the Library

2nd Grade:  We’re Red, Weird, and Blue, What Can We Do? 

3rd Grade:  The Kid Who Ran for President

4th Grade:  The Genius Files: Mission Unstoppable

5th Grade:  The Flashback Four: The Lincoln Project 

If you would like to order additional books, personally signed to your son or daughter, here’s what you should do:

  1.  Purchase a book from your favorite seller.
  2. Put a post-it on the book with your son or daughter’s name.
  3. Give the book to Mrs. Jackson in the library by January 29th.
  4. That’s it!  We’ll take care of the rest and get your autographed book to you on the day of Dan’s visit!  


Mrs. Jackson
