Young Authors' Faire starts Monday
Annual Young Authors' Faire on Display at Doe Avenue Complex
More than 265 elementary and middle school students will display their writings at the annual Young Authors’ Faire.
The students, representing 20 Tulare County schools, worked alone or in groups to produce 185 books this year. The students write, illustrate and bind their stories for the public to read.
The books are on display from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., March 4-8, in the Elderwood Room of the Tulare County Office of Education’s Doe Avenue Complex, 7000 Doe Avenue, Visalia.
During the week, the public is invited to read and comment on the books. An evening reception will also be held from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. Thursday, March 7, so that the public can meet the young authors and celebrate their successes. Students will also have the opportunity to read their books aloud to the audience at the reception.
“I encourage the public to visit and read these wonderful works,” said Tulare County Superintendent of Schools Jim Vidak.
