Anjali Banerjee is coming to OWS!

I am pleased to announce that on Wednesday, March 31st, author Anjali Banerjee will be on campus! She will be holding an assembly and doing writing workshops with grades 3-5, as well as signing books in the library.

Parents are very welcome at the assembly, which will be held in the gym from 9:30-10:15am on the 31st. Please also feel free to drop by the library between 11:30am-12:00pm or 2:30-3:00pm if you would like to meet Anjali.

Families may pre-order copies of her books through University Book Store. Order forms will be going home with 3rd-5th graders this week. Please email me (library at ows dot org) if you need a copy. Order forms are due back at school by 3:30pm on Friday, March 19th, but you may also purchase separately and bring to school your own copy on the day of her visit.

Anjali has won critical acclaim for her books for elementary and middle school students (Maya Running, Looking for Bapu and Seaglass Summer, coming out this May) as well as for adults (Imaginary Men, Invisible Lives). She will be talking with students about her family's cultural roots in India and how they inspire her writing, as well as their emigration to Canada and later to the United States.

We are so fortunate to be able to host her at our school! Don't miss out on this special event!
