Meet the Writers is a beloved program at PS321. For over twenty years, it has brought children’s authors and illustrators to meet with our students. Each grade meets with at least two authors/illustrators a year. The presentations take place in the lobby for a third to a half of the students in the grade. The author/illustrator also stays for a lunch with the teachers from that grade.
We rely on parents to host these events. Hosting entails setting up the lobby, greeting and introducing the author and setting up the lunch. For parents who are unable to volunteer during school hours, we also need someone to bake dessert for the lunch.
