Winterfest 2017 Includes Author Visit With Suzanne Selfors!

For this year’s Winterfest, help us welcome local, award-winning author, Suzanne Selfors. A national best-selling author, Suzanne lives on Bainbridge Island, where she’s inspired by rain and slugs.

Happy New School Year!

Welcome to the 2017-18 school year. I’m excited to see both familiar and new faces at Bryant and look forward to serving you as teacher-librarian. Although working hard over the summer to review new books and other materials so that our Hawks’ brains will soar, I did take time to travel and explore with my family. During my first visit to Paris, I made frequent stops at famous American Bookstore, Shakespeare and Company. Of course, any bookstore with a friendly cat immediately wins me over. Also compelling, their sign reading: “Open door, open book, open mind, open heart.”

As we respond to events happening in our school, community, and world, I’m reminded of how much reading contributes to our empathy and capacity to respond to each other with compassion and kindness. So, I’m going to borrow this wonderful motto for this year and beyond, as we open our minds and hearts together.
