CELEBRATION OF READING!

Award Winning Author/Illustrator Jarrett Krosoczka
Visits Henderson Schools

Two-time Children's Choice Award winner Jarrett Krosoczka spent 3 days in Henderson, Nevada recently visting students at 9 schools, as well as  judging an art contest featuring posters interpreting his book characters, signing copies of his books, viewing a teen performance of his book Punk Farm, and receiving a Key to the City from Henderson's Mayor Hafen.  The annual Celebration of Reading sponsored by the APPLE Partnership is intended to inspire a love of reading, and to encourage young artists and writers to pursue their dreams.  Jarrett Krosoczka certainly accomplished these goals during his whirlwind visit!  Click on the links below for photos and more.
