    Best-selling author visits with LWSD students

    Author Alan Gratz

    Students at Horace Mann Elementary and Redmond Middle School recently met with New York Times Best-Selling Author Alan Gratz. Gratz read from his new book “Allies” during a special assembly called, “Choose Your Own Adventure.” During the event, students had the opportunity to choose from two stories for adventures inspired by Gratz’s books. They chose “Projekt 1065” followed by “Grenade.” Throughout the event, Gratz also shared his love for writing at a young age, which inspired him to pursue his dream of becoming an author of young-adult books.
