On November 17th, the second, third and fourth grades enjoyed a special visit with author Annie Barrows, on tour for her nationally best-selling Ivy and Bean series. Two hundred Stone booklovers were rapt with both attention and admiration as the author read aloud from her latest, Ivy and Bean No News is Good News, shared many funny stories about her own growing up and her inspirations for writing, and answered student questions. She then autographed about a hundred copies of her books for children who had ordered her titles, and the pages are still turning! Fans can continue their author visit in cyberspace at www.anniebarrows.com. Thank you to Chronicle Books and The Book Cellar for making this visit possible!
