On May 22, 1997, we held our annual Young Authors' Conference. Every student (K-5) published a book. On this special day each student had a chance to share his or her book with other students, parents, and teachers. This event was organized by our librarian, Mrs. Dene Napolitan. Our special guest this year was childrens' book author Peg Kehret!

Peg shared some personal stories with our school.
She had some wonderful advice for all of us.
Here she autographs one of her books.
"Follow your dreams!"
In the afternoon all Arbor Heights students shared their books in small groups with children from other classrooms and grades. Then there was an all-school recess and autographing party! Thanks to our PTSA and the Bon Marche' for our beautiful T-shirts!
The playground was blazing red!
Mr. Leatherman autographs books and ... .. shirts!
