A Special Visit from author J.C. Cervantes

Ortiz had the privilege of hosting NY Times bestselling author J.C. Cervantes on Thursday, September 5 for all 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students. Cervantes discussed in detail the characters she created and the research she conducted to write her book The Storm Runner and her new release The Fire Keeper. She was able to show students connections between her own life experiences and the books she created through the writing process. Students and teachers were then able to receive signed copies of the books they had purchased.
