Location: Elmer's Restaurant in The Sunset Room
This event will introduce area folks interested in furthering literacy in Douglas County to the Patricia Gallagher Books picked for 2012-13. Patricia Gallagher was an influential educator in Oregon. There are five books picked to be on this list of quality picture books which are sent into primary and intermediate schools to be read aloud to students. The students vote on which is their favorite in the collection and the Oregon Reading Association publishes the results on their website. Joy Malone and Gall Jackson-Francis, retired Roseburg School District Teacher's will demonstrate lessons that can be taught using several of these books. Lessons, take home materials, prizes, trick&treat bags, free URC/ORA memberships, free appetizers and much more are available at this fun event. Please join us if you love kids and literature for them.
