Tuesday Sept 20 at 10am, The Sulphur Springs Public Library has invited an author to speak to the Bright Star Christian School and Water Oak Elementary students by Skype. Stuart Gibbs is a popular author of Space Case from the Texas Bluebonnet Nominee list.
The Texas Bluebonnet Award is given annually from a list of 20 nominees chosen by a committee considering student interests, relevant content, reputable reviews, and literary quality. Both fiction and nonfiction books are represented. Students in Grades 3-6 who have read (or heard read aloud) at least 5 of the 20 master list titles are eligible to vote each January and the Sulphur Springs Public library is a polling place. What a great opportunity to show the students how an election process works.
The public library has invited those students who have read Stuart Gibbs’ book to talk to him about his story, characters and his inspiration to write.
