    Traditional Visits

    Author #1 - Jeff Nunnally

    Would you like an author to visit your school for a special event, literacy night or just to read, meet and greet during classes?  If so, Jeff Nunnally would be a great choice.  


    This House Needs A Mouse


    He visited two of our schools last year to share his Colorado Book Award nominee "This House Needs a Mouse."  While he did read and discuss his book , he really focused on the writing process and what it took to be an author.
