Last call for autographed books by Patricia Wrede - Due Now
9/23/2023 11:33 pm
New York Times Best selling author, Patricia C. Wrede, came to Monroe to speak to our 3rd-5th graders last week.
Her new fantasy is titled, "The Dark Lord's Daughter." Is Kayla destined for darkness or can she be a new kind of Dark Lady?
These author visits are free to our school for hosting a book fair. However, there is a minimum purchase of 30 books. If sales are not met, the library must pay for the additional cost. We are just shy of our goal. We only need 14 more orders.
Please consider supporting your child's love of reading and Monroe's library by purchasing a personal copy of the book HERE.
