An author of children’s books is visiting Washington next week. Author Carol Gorman will be a guest at Lincoln Elementary to talk with the students in each grade level, answer questions and autograph copies of her books. Gorman has written such books as Dork in Disguise, Chelsey and the Green-Haired Kid and Slumptown Kid.
Gorman will be taking part in assemblies at Lincoln as well as have lunch with the staff next Friday.
As part of the event, children can take part in a costume contest Thursday night where they can dress as a character from one of Gorman’s books and the winners will be allowed to wear the costumes the next day.
