8th Grade Author Visit!
On Tuesday, April 23, Crone 8th graders will welcome a guest writer Mitali Perkins, author of twelve books including her newest title, Forward Me Back to You. Ms. Perkins was born in Kolkata (Calcutta), India, and has lived all over the world. She will talk to students about how “story” was her lifeline growing up. She writes that “Books were my rock, my stability, my safe place as I navigated the border between California suburbia and the Bengali culture of my traditional home.” Her new book, Forward Me Back to You, describes the journeys of three teens as they travel to India on a service trip and learn more about themselves in the process. If you are interested in purchasing an autographed copy of Forward Me Back to You, please turn in the order form linked below and a check (made payable to Crone Middle School) or exact cash to the LMC before Tuesday, April 30. Please see Mrs. Yockey or visit http://bit.ly/cronelmc for more details.
