Over 100 students and their families packed the gym for the Second Annual Jacksonville Elementary Writers' Festival. Attendees browsed over 400 pieces of displayed student writing. Bestselling author and keynote speaker, Judy Sierra, dazzled the crowd with her presentation of her journey as a writer. She also read Wild About Books, pausing to give insight into her writing process and collaboration with acclaimed author and illustrator, Marc Brown (the creator and illustrator of the Arthur series). Marc Brown illustrated Wild About Books, Zoozical and the
soon-to-be-released story about zoo adoption, Wild About You. Many thanks to the PTO for sponsoring Ms. Sierra's visit to the Jacksonville Elementary Writers' Festival!
