Author Phil Bildner Promoted Reading and Writing at LES

Phil Bildner Author Visit 030 Phil Bildner Author Visit 048 Phil Bildner, author of “Hallelujah Flight”, “Shoeless Joe and Black Betsy”, “Twenty One Elephants” and many other books visited LES on February 25th. He wowed the students with information about how important it is to take pride in your writing, and how many times authors and illustrators must revise their work on a book before it is ever published.  He insisted that “Reading is not an option. You have to read to be successful in life”. He “book talked” other authors’ books and those were all checked out or requested the next day. The day was enjoyed by everyone that participated!
