Teachers' Night featuring special guest author Vince Vawter, author of Paperboy

Calling all teachers and librarians! Please join Parnassus Books for Teachers' Night on Sunday July 27th beginning at 3pm! The school with the most teachers and librarians represented will receive priority scheduling for an author school visit during the 2014-2015 school year!We'll begin with an author visit from Vince Vawter, author of the Newbery Honor book, Paperboy! Paperboy tells the story of Little Man, a young boy who throws the meanest fastball in town. But talking is a whole different ball game. He can barely say a word without stuttering--not even his own name. So when he takes over his best friend's paper route for the month of July, he's not exactly looking forward to interacting with the customers. But it's the neighborhood junkman, a bully and thief, who stirs up real trouble in Little Man's life. Paperboy was an ALA-ALSC Notable Children's Book, an IRA Teacher's Choice, a BookPage Best Children's Book, and a nominee for the Kentucky Bluegrass Award. After Vince's presentation and signing, please join us for classroom giveaways and raffles, wine and cheese, and an opportunity to chat about the upcoming school year with other teachers and librarians. Sign up for our Parnassus Educator program and receive a 25% discount on all book purchases at Teachers' Night as well as a 20% discount on book purchases throughout the year.
