News from the GOK Library - J. Scott Savage Author Visit for grades 3 and 4

Dear Families,

The library has the wonderful opportunity to host author J. Scott Savage on his book tour through the southwest. He will be speaking with our 3rd and 4th graders on Friday, Feb. 10 about his books and what it is like to be an author.

I have introduced the students to some of his books and they seem genuinely excited to meet a real author! His current collections of books for students are fantasy, horror, and mystery. His newest title being released in March starts an adventure series called Graysen Foxx.

If you would like to purchase any J. Scott Savage books, please see the flyer below and use the QR code to access the site for ordering. He will sign all books upon his return on March 10 at an author signing event at GOK.
