Visiting Author - Stacy Nyikos

Award-winning children's author, Stacy Nyikos, visited our school on Wednesday, November 19th. She talked to students about how books go from ideas to finished products, the writing process, and how she creates stories like Dragon Wishes. Ms. Nyikos ate lunch with a group of lucky students and signed autographs while eating lunch!

Many students purchased Ms. Nyikos' books as a keepsake of their visit with her. Each book came with a personalized autograph. In addition, the students were engaged in Ms. Nyikos' presentations and asked thoughtful questions. We even got to see her real writer's notebook where she kept notes on her next book!

Links to Ms. Nyikos' books on are below:

You can see a video trailer of Dragon Wishes below.

We are thankful for a successful and enriching author visit!
