I couldn't be more excited to announce that Carmen Agra Deedy will be coming to Jefferson Parkway Thursday, September 28th! She is one of my favorite storytellers, authors, and people! I see her at a lot of conferences and meetings for people who love books. She was born in Cuba and migrated to Decatur, Georgia when she was a young girl. She tells some of the best stories of her childhood that will keep you listening to every word she says.
I will send home an order sheet so that students can pre-order her books to have them autographed. Students have loved every single one of her books that I've read to them.
Stay tuned for more information!!!
