    Thanks to ALLen Reads and the Foundation for Allen Schools, Jordan Sonnenblick came to Ford on Feb.20th. He talked with a small group of 7th and 8th graders, including the Mustang Readers Book Club. The students and adults, including myself, had a wonderful time listening to his humorous and serious stories of writing and research. We were even luck enough to get him in on our book club picture for the year! For more information on Jordan, please check out his website at http://www.jordansonnenblick.com/

    In the Fall of 2014, PJ Hoover came back to Ford to visit with the 7th graders right before they started mythology. PJ talked about the writing process, her love of mythology, and her newly released book, TUT: the story of my immortal life (A 2015 Lone Star Book).
