Derek Anderson will visit MFL MarMac Elementary on Thursday, April 19. He is the author / illustrator for such books as Little Quack, Hot Rod Hamster, Gladys Goes Out To Lunch, Ten Hungry Pigs and more! He shares, "My presentation is about my own story. I show drawings I did as a boy growing up in Iowa and then talk about chasing dreams and the importance of not giving up. I talk about where ideas come from and how it's okay to make mistakes."
Anderson's will meet with K-3 first for his presentation and drawing demo. The preschool and junior kindergarten classes will get a more intimate discussion with him for storytime and drawings afterward.
Anderson will travel to Clayton Ridge for the afternoon and will also speak at the Northeast Iowa Reading Council banquet Thursday evening. For more information about the author, visit his website.
