OJAuthor Erica Perl, skyped with the Haggerty fourth grade book club to discuss her book When Life Gives You O.J. Librarian Sarah Novogrodsky reported that Ms. Perl, “told us about her inspiration for the book and for many of the book’s characters, including the crazy grandpa, Ace.” Students shared their Chatterpix creations with Ms. Perl. Using the Chatterpix app to draw a mouth on a photograph and then record audio was a perfect tie-in activity with Ms. Perl’s book.

OutlawsThanks to the generosity of the Friends of Haggerty, students were also treated to visits from authors Vaunda Micheaux Nelson and Annette LeBlanc Cate.
