Author Visits

These author visits were paid for through profits from the library's annual book fair.  Authors inspire students to be better readers and writers!

  Buck Wilder had us laughing as we learned in 2014!

Buck Wilder is everyone's favorite outdoors man and author.  He has been to Vanderhoof twice in the last ten years and is wildly popular with the students.  Kids eat up his cleverly titled books and folksy delivery. Favorites include
Who Stole the Animal Poop and Small Fry Fishing Guide.

Gary Hogg wowed us in 2012 & 2013

Children’s author and storyteller Gary Hogg has tickled over one million funny bones with his extremely popular school assemblies and writer workshops. He had the Vanderhoof students laughing and inspired us all to be better writers! To visit Mr. Hogg's website and learn more about his many books, awards, and his life, click on the following link:

Laurence Pringle visited Vanderhoof in 2011

Mr. Pringle is well-know for his many superbly written non-fiction books. What was especially fun was the writing contest we held that year in conjuction with his visit. Students were asked to write a persuasive letter on why they'd like to have lunch with Mr. Pringle. Winners got to share pizza and stories with the author on the day of his visit! The kids had a great experience and the letters supported Vanderhoof's goal of raising student writing scores,too! Here is Mr. Pringle's website:
