Counting down until Anjali's visit!

This coming Wednesday, we will welcome acclaimed author Anjali Banerjee to Open Window School! Parents are welcome to attend the morning assembly in the gym from 9:30-10:15am. Anjali will also be in the library from 11:30am-12:00pm and from 2:30-3:00pm if you would like to meet her and have her sign your books.

University Book Store will bring copies of her books for kids and adults to school to purchase on the day of the event. Please contact me (library at ows dot org) if you have any questions about the day's activities!

In preparation for her visit, 3rd, 4th and 5th grade students have been reading Looking for Bapu or Maya Running in the library or classroom. In addition, 4th and 5th graders are hearing How Ganesh Got His Elephant Head by Harish Johari and Vatsala Sperling during library classes. Learning more about Ganesh, Shiva, Parvati and other Hindu gods and goddesses is helping students have a deeper understanding of Anjali's works and they have been enthralled by the humor, drama and wisdom of this story.
