Educators who work with students from grades K- 5 should plan on attending The Book Stall’s Annual Educator Day. We’ll feature booktalks by booksellers, we will spotlight publisher reps talking about their best new books of the season, and we’ll welcome guest authors discussing and signing copies of their new books! All attendees recieve a special discount on all purchases. Our educator events always feature a ton of fun giveaways and raffle prizes, as well as useful information. It’s completely free, but we do ask you to reserve your spot by calling us at 847-446-8880 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, as space is limited.
Our Guest Authors:
Bob Raczka has always loved playing with words. He is the author of many books for children, including Niko Draws a Feeling and Wet Cement: A Mix of Concrete Poems. He studied art in college and has worked in advertising for more than twenty-five years. His new picture book is Beware! A cautionary tale using words made up of only the five letters in the title (B, E, W, A, and R). Can a bear and a bee become friends?
Suzanne Slade is a mechanical engineer who worked on Delta IV rockets for NASA. She has written more than one hundred children's books, including Dangerous Jane; Out of School and Into Nature: The Anna Comstock Story; The Inventor's Secret: What Thomas Edison Told Henry Ford; Friends for Freedom: The Story of Susan B. Anthony & Frederick Douglass; and The House That George Built. Suzanne lives near Chicago. She'll be presenting four new books about space, and offering space selfies to all of our attendees!
Allan Woodrow is the author of many books including The Pet War, Class Dismissed, Unschooled, Field Tripped, and now, inspired by Dracula, old werewolf movies, Young Frankenstein, and an odd affection for fish sticks, The Curse of the Werepenguin. When Allan isn't writing, or noshing on breading-coated seafood, he's often presenting to schools, libraries, and conferences. You can learn more about at allanwoodrow.com.
Jasmine Warga is the author of My Heart and Other Black Holes, which has been translated into over twenty languages, and Here We Are Now. Her debut middle grade book is Other Words for Home. [In] this timely book... rhythmic lines distill Jude's deepest emotions.... Warga effectively shows, as she writes in an author's note, that "children who are fleeing from a war zone... want the same things all of us do--love, understanding, safety, a chance at happiness."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)
