VISITING AUTHOR DAYS: April 26 and 27, 2023
The Miller-Driscoll PTA proudly sponsors acclaimed visiting author, Deborah Freedman. Our very own librarians are big fans of Ms. Freedman and her books!
Deborah Freedman was an architect once-upon-a-time, but now she loves to build worlds in books. Her first picture books were tiny and hand-made over thirty years ago for her own children, and her first published book debuted in 2007. Since then, she has written and illustrated many more. Her books have been translated into nine different languages, adopted in classrooms across the country, and received many starred and rave reviews, honors, and awards — including SCBWI’s Crystal Kite Award and a Parent's Choice Gold Award.
Lost in books and the arts for as long as she can remember, Deborah majored in art history in college and then went on to study design. She is the proud mom of four grown children, an adoring grandma of six, and the devoted guardian of many stuffed animals. When she isn’t making picture books or daydreaming, she likes to plant things and watch them grow, and to wander through museums, libraries, and the woods near her colorful home in southern Connecticut. Take a look here for Deborah's most current news, or sign up for her occasional email newsletter.
In conjunction with this event, the books below are available for purchase. Ms. Freedman will sign your books, which will be delivered to your child’s classroom on Visiting Author Days. Be sure to fill in your child’s name with your order form as you would like it to appear.
Orders are due by Friday, March 17. Proceeds from book sales will benefit PTA events, including Visiting Author Days each year.
