Bestselling author Ellen Hopkins visited the Eastside Memorial library on Friday, September 27th. It was the perfect ending to our celebration of Banned Books Week, and she didn’t disappoint! From reading aloud her work to her presentation about her life and writing, Ms. Hopkins was riveting and incredibly responsive to our students. She took questions from them after the talk and signed copies of her books for them afterward. She was kind and gracious and it was an experience that we hope the 30 students in attendance won’t soon forget!
