Author Visit News!

Have you heard about our upcoming author visit? Mystery and suspense author Margaret Peterson Haddix will be visiting Shabonee School on November 7th!

You can read about Margaret’s books on her website:

All library classes will be spending time learning about Margaret, as well as what makes a mystery book so especially fun to read! (And write!)

Margaret will be signing books the day of her visit! Students can bring in their own copies of her books, or they can order books through a school book order (supplied by The Book Bin.) The order form for Margaret’s books will go home with students in October.

We will also be holding a very special Chat & Chew “Author Visit” edition. On November 1st, 5th-grade students and an optional adult guest are invited to attend a book “Chat & Chew” during lunch and recess on that day. We will be discussing the book Running Out of Time, by Haddix. If you’d like to sign up to participate, you can turn in a permission form, or email Ms. Parker at, or Mrs. Singer at
