Jon Claude Bemis - Visiting Author

We had the opportunity to visit with Jon Claude Bemis, an author of children's novels, The Nine Pound Hammer, The Wolf Tree, The White City, and his latest book, The Prince Who Fell From the Sky

Students had the opportunity to hear about Jon's latest book and ask questions. We were all excited to hear that Jon has several notebooks where he collects his story ideas.

Students also become characters in Jon's story. Enjoy the pictures from the visit!
