Meeting An Author

I am excited to announce that we were able to secure three presentations with children's author Lisa Campbell Ernst on October 2nd. This visit is possible because of the hard work and dedication of the grant committee and companies such as Target supporting their local schools. Thank you Kelly Kouba and Target.

AuthorErnstBooksGrowing up in the Midwest, Lisa Campbell Ernst enjoyed traveling with her family to the Gulf Coast and other popular vacation spots. Today she continues to appreciate the summer sand and sea when she takes her own family to the shore. Lisa Campbell Ernst has written and illustrated over twenty picture books, including Stella Louella's Runaway Book, which won the Children's Choice Award in Kansas, and the ever-popular Sam Johnson and the Blue Ribbon Quilt. She lives with her husband and two daughters in Kansas City, Missouri.

I am in the process of preordering her books for the students to purchase. These can be signed the day of the visit. We'll have more details of what the children learned and photos with Mrs. Ernst after her visit.  -Debbie Van Huffel, Librarian
