Author Suzanne Selfors Delights Students and Staff

For the past few months students and staff at Oak Ridge and Glen Oaks have been participating in “One Book, Two Schools.” The media and reading specialists at both schools have joined forces to produce this program for the Mustangs and Panthers. Every week during students’ Media class, they have been listening to the book Wedgie & Gizmo read aloud by these teachers. As a special treat, the author of Wedgie & Gizmo, Suzanne Selfors, visited our students virtually on Friday, November 6. She visited the 2nd and 3rd graders in the morning and the 4th and 5th graders had their visit in the afternoon. Students submitted questions and were able to ask Selfors about her writing style, inspirations, and more. The inspiration for Wedgie, Selfors’ dog, even made a special appearance! Thank you to the staff who made this visit possible, and thank you to Suzanne Selfors for being such a wonderful guest!
