Submitted by dorie.thatcher on

Students at Salem Elementary were honored to have a Brent Boswell, a children's novelist, visit their school.  Boswell engaged the students with a fun presentation in which he discussed the importance of reading.  He told students that everyone can enjoy reading!  He encouraged students to figure out what it is that they are interested in, and then to read books according to their interests.  He signed and autographed some of his books and gave them out to some lucky students!
