Author Visit

Posted on October 7, 2019

On Thursday, October 3, over 600 students enjoyed a visit from best-selling YA novelist and screenwriter Neal Shusterman. Author of over 50 books for teens, Shusterman is the 2015 winner of the National Book Award for Young People’s Literature for his novel Challenger Deep.  His novel Scythe won Nebraska’s 2019 Golden Sower award for best YA novel. After his visit, Shusterman signed over 100 copies of his books for appreciative middle-school readers.  Special thanks goes to The Bookworm for collaborating with the WMS library staff to get these amazing books into students’ hands.
