Visiting Authors: Community Opportunities


Visiting Authors Book Sale and Signing

The Elementary Library will have a limited selection of books by our visiting authors available for sale from March 4-8. We have several titles available by both Laura Vaccaro Seeger and William Kamkwamba, some hardback and some paperback, ranging in price from AED 30 to AED 70. Students and parents are welcome to visit throughout the school day to purchase books.

Would you like to have your books signed by our visiting authors? When you purchase a book, we will label it with the name that you would like to include in the dedication. The books will then be delivered to your child's classroom before March 28. If you have books at home or would like to purchase them elsewhere, you may also bring these books into the ES Library to be signed.

We are thrilled to offer a screening of the newly released film adaptation of William Kamkwamba's The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind. Join us on Tuesday, March 19 at 6pm in the ASD Theater. A Question and Answer session will follow with William Kamkwamba himself. Families of students Grade 4 and up are encouraged to attend. Please note that the film has a US rating of PG11.

Family Book Making Workshop with Laura Seeger

Join us on Tuesday, March 26 in the ES Library from 3:30pm - 4:30pm for a Family Book Making Workshop with Laura Seeger. Children will have the opportunity to create and cut-out or flap book in the style of Laura's work. It will be a fun, hands-on opportunity for families to be book makers together.
