On Tuesday, October 13th, Amity Middle School Orange (AMSO) media specialist, Kristin Leibrock, and reading consultant, Jennifer Bshara, delivered 176 copies of Tim Green’s new book, Kid Owner, to the seventh graders at Ansonia Middle School. Before distributing the books, Kristin and Jen conducted a brief presentation about the author, Tim Green, during which they gave a quick overview of his life, experiences, programs, vision, and motto: “Reading is weightlifting for your brain”. The students were overwhelmingly surprised and excited to get the books.
Mr. Green visited AMSO on Thursday, October 15th, and in lieu of his fee, he asked that $2,000 worth of his books be donated to an underprivileged school in the area. This is the second time Mr. Green has visited AMSO. He visited two years ago, and AMSO made a similar book donation to Ansonia Middle School then as well.
AMSO students were encouraged to buy copies of his books to have him sign. After his presentation Mr. Green signed books and took pictures with students. The students loved it; it was a great experience!
