The three elementary schools in the District were treated with a special visit from author Sarah Weeks from March 13-15.

Ms. Weeks visited one school per day and spoke to students about the writing process, the fun of writing and her collection of books. She also previewed her upcoming book, “Lizzy McTizzy and the Busy Dizzy Day,” to be released on Apr. 2. Additionally, she discussed the differences between an author and an illustrator, her inspirations for writing and her growth into a writer.

Ms. Week has written 59 books to this point in her career and is currently developing the next one. Her book “So B. It” won the 2006 Dolly Gray Children’s Literature Award as well as the 2007 Rebecca Caudill Young Reader’s Book Award and the William Allen White Children’s Book Award.

The district thanks Ms. Weeks for visiting Bethpage as the entire community looks forward to her next release!
