With generous help from the Delaware County Literacy Council, Ridley High School will be hosting an AUTHOR VISIT on Thursday, December 10, during 4th block. Catherine Gilbert Murdock lives in Wayne and is the popular author of Dairy Queen, The Off Season, and Front and Center. All 4th block classes are invited to attend this event in the auditorium. There will be a 45-minute presentation, starting at 1:15 and followed by a book signing.
To promote this event, the library has many copies of Dairy Queen and the other books, as well as an audio version of Dairy Queen on CD. These can be checked out by students and staff to read before the visit. Students can purchase copies of the book if they’d like to have a copy signed on Dec. 10 (order forms will be available soon). Audio excerpts of each book are available at www.catherinemurdock.com.
This is an exciting event for Ridley High School – I encourage everyone to participate by reading the book, visiting the author’s web site, and coming to hear the presentation on December 10!
