Students from Challenger Elementary of Tamarac and their families were invited to “Meet the Author Night” on February16, 2012 where selected student authors shared their stories to the audience.
A percentage of all purchases made that evening by Challenger families were returned to the school by Barnes & Noble.
Besides, the honor of being selected to be an author, students received an extra credit in reading or language arts, a free homework pass and were allowed to wear jeans with their spirit T-shirt the following Friday.
Sharon Aron Baron is the Editor of Talk Media and writer for Tamarac Talk, Coral Springs Talk and Parkland Talk.
Tamarac Talk was created in 2010 to provide News, Views and Entertainment for the residents of Tamarac.
