Meet Gary Paulsen!

As part of The Big Read, a National Endowment for the Arts initiative, our local public library is bringing many notable authors and other speakers to our area. Check out the announcement below from KCLS! Gary Paulsen is very popular with our 4th graders, who read Hatchet every year, as well as with many other students. Don't miss this chance to see him speak!
