A.S. King at Ridley High School!

The Ridley High School Library partnered with Children’s Book World in Haverford, PA, to host a visit with award-winning author A.S. King on March 26, 2015! Through a grant, Children’s Book World generously provided a copy of Ms. King’s popular book, Everybody Sees the Ants, to each of our 200 lucky student attendees!


Ms. King spoke about her writing, overcoming bullying, and how teens can develop a more positive self-image. As always, our students made a wonderful and attentive audience. It was a truly memorable presentation, and we feel so fortunate to have hosted this event!
