Special Guest Read ‘The Tale of Edgar Trunk’ At TEADS Annual Book Fair

By Dupé Aleru|April 14, 2011|10:53 a.m. 

Temple Emanuel Academy Day School (TEADS) sponsored its Annual Science and Art Fair to showcase the creative works of its children in addition to its Scholastic Book Fair.

As a special extravagance, the students at TEADS had the opportunity to meet and listen to two authors. The authors read from their books, signed books for the students and discussed the process of becoming an author.

Author Jason O. Silva read from his book, The Tale of Edgar Trunk, a first in a series of tales about a little boy named Edgar who has lived most of his orphaned life under the tutelage of his wicked Uncle Warnock in a sludge factory. The children were enthralled to hear the tale and to understand how the author came up with his story.

TEAD students also had the great privilege of listening to author Rhonda Hayter, who is the author of The Witchy Worries of Abbie Adams. Hayter generously spent her afternoon greeting the children and answering questions about the writing process, how to publish works and signed copies of her book.
