For Teachers

Visiting Author

Visiting Author:  Charlotte Guillain

We are thrilled to host author Charlotte Guillain in both our lower school and early childhood center this week.  Charlotte writes both fiction and nonfiction books for children including the popular picture book  "Spaghetti with the Yeti" which was nominated for nine awards including the Roald Dahl Funny Prize.  She's written over 100 books.  Among our favorites are her nonfiction titles "The Street Beneath My Feet" and "The Skies Above My Eyes".  On Tuesday Charlotte will meet with all students at the lower school and she'll be available to autograph her titles from your personal collection at the end of the day in the library starting at 2:30.
