- September 23rd: Chris Crowe, Getting Away With Murder
- November 11th: Lisa Mangum, The Hourglass Door
- January 20th: Ally Condie, Matched
- February 17th: Not announced
- March 17th: Not announced
- April 7th: Not announced
Whether you are looking to work on recertification, getting a college credit, or simply reading some great books, this sounds like an amazing opportunity! If you're interested, you can sign up with Alpine School District on their Professional Development main page. Also, you can email me and I can send you a copy of the flyer that was distributed.
We discussed the best way to distribute the books (since they will be sent to the individual schools) and determined that you can either have them sent to me and we can arrange something, or they can be picked up directly from the School District in American Fork.
This should be a great opportunity to read some of our local authors. If you're interested, and you think it might fit into your schedule, check it out! You can contact me if you have any questions.
