Lindero is very fortunate to be hosting author Wendelin van Draanen on May 14, 2007. Ms. van Draanen has written many popular award-winning books for young people. Hearing and meeting an author is a very motivating experience for students, and we hope you will want to take advantage of this opportunity. In order to attend an assembly with Ms. van Draanen, students need to read and successfully complete an Accelerated Reader quiz on one or more of her books. Students who read more than one will also be entered in a lottery to attend a smaller event with the author.
The Lindero Library has some of Ms. van Draanen's books for circulation but not enough to serve our entire student population. We encourage you to purchase one or more of her books. All students who purchase books will be invited to a book signing with Ms. van Draanen on May 14. We have arranged with Barnes & Noble to order copies of her books for our students, and your purchase will also be credited to our PFC Book Fair profits that benefit the library. If you are interested in ordering books, please complete an order form as soon as possible so that you will have ample time to read before Ms. van Draanen’s visit.
See a complete list of Ms. van Draanen's books on our AR list. Her newest book, Runaway, will be on our AR list very soon.
Ms. van Draanen's visit is being made possible thanks to the generous support of our PFC.
