Author Sharon Draper Comes to Addison
March 30, 2010
Join us for the Community Reception for author Sharon Draper on Wednesday, April 14, at 7 pm. The Reception will be held in the Rotunda in Village Hall, 1 Friendship Plaza. Draper worked with the authors of this year's Addison/Villa Park Reads.
We are delighted to have author Sharon Draper
in Addison for our Community Reads program and encourage you to attend the Community Reception. Following a short presentation, she will answer questions and autograph copies of her books. Friends of the Addison Public Library will provide refreshments.
Sharon Draper worked with the three doctors—Sampson Davis, George Jenkins, and Rameck Hunt—to rewrite their book, The Pact
, for a younger audience. We Beat the Street
is the result of their cooperative efforts.
Sharon speaks at two daytime programs which are also open to adults. They take place from 9:35 to10:25 am at Addison Trail High School Auditorium and from 1:35 to 2:15 pm at Willowbrook High School Auditorium.
