On Tuesday, October 21st at 12:45, author David Sargent Jr. will talk with SWLE students in K-3 about the importance of reading and writing. Mr. Sargent is from Arkansas and has written over 20 books inspired by his pets. He will be bringing his dogs, Tatum and Daphne along with his newest family pet -- a gray and white Pomeranian puppy. Not only will Mr. Sargent share his love for writing with the students, he will have his dogs to perform tricks as well! His highly informative and entertaining talks are sure to teach the children the importance of reading and writing. He shows students that anyone can be an author and manages to stimulate the children's story writing ability using the universal love of animals!

After his presentation, Mr. Sargent will be in the library personally autographing each book, bookmark, picture, and poster purchased by students! Paperback prices are $7 for one book, $20 for three books, $25 for four books, $30 for 5 books, $60 for 12 books, $80 for all 16. Taxes are included in pricing. He will have  bookmarks and author photos on sale for $1 or various styles of posters on sale for $2. For book titles, see flyers that went home in your child's sign paper folders this week!
