World Read Aloud Day Author Visit with Terri Tatchell
February 2 @ 9:30 am - 10:15 am PST
This virtual author visit features Terri Tatchell, Academy Award Nominee and author of the Endangered and Misunderstood series.
Terri Tatchell is a Canadian writer known for her Oscar nominated work on ‘District 9’. Her love for animals and allegory have united in the creation of the ‘Endangered and Misunderstood’ series, giving the underdogs of endangered animals a lyrical voice filled with laughter, adventure and relatable themes.
Terri will spend time speaking with students about the conservation of endangered animals. She will read Aye-Aye Gets Lucky from the Endangered and Misunderstood series, a cute story about an endangered lemur who loves pulling pranks on the villagers of Madagascar. Under the surface, it’s a story about empathy, self-acceptance, community and second chances.
