STRONG – Maine children’s book author Lynn Plourde will make presentations on Tuesday, Nov. 29, at the Strong School.

During an opening assembly, Plourde will present an interactive reading of some of her picture books, “Pigs in the Mud in the Middle of the Rud,” “Wild Child” and “Pajama Day.”

She will also lead students in a dramatization of one of her books, with students playing parts using simple props. Then Plourde will visit with students in smaller groups to share extra stories and writing advice.

Plourde has offered to autograph her books for the students. Parents are welcome to attend the sessions. The Strong Library will offer her books for sale.

There will be a limited number available for purchase on Nov. 29 so they may be preorder from the school. Call the school at 684-3521 for more information.
