Visiting Author Lauren Tarshis Returns to West!

On November 18th, New York Times bestselling author Lauren Tarshis came to speak to all West students in Grades K-4. It was the first in-person author visit that the school has hosted since spring 2020. The students loved learning all about how she gets ideas for her books, including the historical fiction book series I Survived, and what it takes to be a good writer. 

A big THANK YOU to our visiting author chairs, Lesley Rotchford and Eileen Hojnacki, for putting together such a great program and for your generous donations to WestFest, which made this visit possible!
