Author Michael J. Rosen, who has written over 75 children’s books, young adult novels and cookbooks, will visit Wiggin Street Elementary School on March 6 and 7.
Rosen’s newest book, Chanukah Lights, which includes pop-up illustrations, will be on sale and available for signing. He will speak on March 6 at 7:00 p.m. in the Wiggin Street gym and will participate in several workshops with Wiggin Street students on March 7 during the day.
“The teachers [at Wiggin Street] have a very strong tradition of literacy,” said Wiggin Street Literacy Coordinator Vicky Lambert, who is organizing the event. “Through a lot of donations and grants, we were able to have Rosen be here for one full day,” Lambert said.
Any Kenyon students or faculty who are on campus for the Tuesday night event are welcome to attend. “In appreciation of all the hard work that [Kenyon’s] volunteers do and all of the support from the College … we would like to invite them to come share our evening with the author,” she said.
