An author with Columbus Junction ties will be visiting with Roundy Elementary kids today. Columbus Junction Public Library Director Cathy Crawford says Steve Paulding’s grandparents are Jim and Thelma Paulding, who both taught in the school district.
Jim Paulding was a principal. While growing up, Steve Paulding lived in Columbus Junction for a time and is currently a teacher in Colorado.
He has published a book for adolescents called Life Lessons from Andy Wink. The book is told from the eyes of a sixth grader and each chapter has a situation in which a life lesson is taught.
Paulding will talk to students about his book as well as what it’s like to be author, the steps involved in publishing a book and working with an illustrator. He’ll also be signing books at the Columbus Junction Public Library tomrrow afternoon at 1-pm.
