Author Dan Gutman visits North Main

on June 18, 2019

Author visits are always wonderful, but Dan Gutman brought his crazy sense of humor with him when he visited North Main in May. His funny stories and the tremendous interest he took in talking with students really stood out. And then there were his outlandish socks!

A special part of the day was the Dine with Dan lunch for the winners of a school-wide essay contest. Students were asked to write a well-planned persuasive essay explaining why they should be invited to lunch with Dan Gutman, including reflections on books they had read and why they liked them. Thanks to the PTA, twelve lucky students in grades 2-5 enjoyed pizza, conversation and lots of laughter with the author. Many thanks go to the North Main PTA, to school librarian Mr. Elser, and of course, to Dan Gutman. It was a great day!
