On January 22, Wallingford Elementary School hosted children’s author Mac Barnett, creator of the Brixton Brothers mysteries, The Terrible Two, and the just-published The Terrible Two Get Worse. Barnett read from his books and entertained a “wildly enthusiastic” assembly of 3rd through 5th graders and teachers, according to WES parent Kristin Snyder. “Wow, what a dynamic presentation he gave! He actively engaged his audience of students and received a room full of vibrant smiles and contagious laughs in return.” Barnett also visited with students and signed books in the WES library, and engaged in a one-on-one video interview with WES 5th grader Charles Bogert, who posed intriguing questions to the guest author before a more intimate audience. WES librarian Martha Lambertsen has worked with Children’s Book World to bring Barnett and many other beloved children’s authors to the school. Swarthmore resident and author Judith Schachner will visit WES on Friday, February 28.
