Bestselling Author Visits Middle School

Lower and middle schoolers were excited to welcome James Ponti, New York Times bestselling author of the wildly popular and award-winning series City Spies. Prior to his visit today, students were given a copy of one of Ponti’s books to inspire the magic that happens when a student has read a book by a visiting author. After speaking about his journey to authorship, Ponti offered writing workshops and taught students how to stretch their creative muscles.
