In honor of Read Across America, our local bookstore (Parkplace Books) is bringing author Dori Jones Yang to visit our school. I am very excited to host Ms. Yang, especially since she willingly agreed to speak with our 9th graders.
I just finished Ms. Yang's new book "Daughter of Xanadu" over the weekend and I must say that I thoroughly enjoyed it. I will post a separate review this week, but I would definitely give it 4 stars!
If you would like to order an autographed copy of the book, please fill out and return the order form to the EJH Library ASAP. You can find the form on the Library home page.
It is always a wonderful experience for readers to meet an author and listen to them speak. I am so grateful to provide my students with this opportunity. I am hoping that Ms. Yang will agree to let me post an author interview on the blog...stay tuned this week for more details!
