Yes, the big news is that Michigan native Patricia Polacco will be our author for November. She is one of my all-time favorite children's books authors, for a variety of reasons. Many of her books are autobiographical in nature, and she never shies away from tough social issues. Racism, learning disabilities, bullying, homelessness, and fears are all handled in a gentle, accessible way.
