We wish to offer a very sincere thank you to authors Susy Flory, Marci Seither & members of the West Coast Christians Writers Conference for their generous donations of books. We were thrilled to have best selling American authors Susy & Marci visit our school in October. They visited all classes and spoke about their lives as authors as well as discussing their books. Marci discussed 'The Adventures of Pearley Monroe' based on the American Gold Rush' & her children's book 'Flip Flap'. Susy has many published titles including New York times best selling book 'Thunder Dog' based on a blind man & his dog's brave escape from the Twin Towers during 911. The children were definitely inspired with many declaring they wanted to be authors when they grew up. We even had some books written by the children by the end of the day! 

Born out of this visit was Susy & Marci's project to help us replenish our reading resources & libraries in the school. Susy, Marci & the members of the West Coast Christians Conference sponsored a large selection of books for Liscarroll NS. These books were hand picked by teachers for their educational & enjoyment value. The books began arriving from America in the post over the past few days and we are very thankful for their kind donations. Newly replenished libraries will be a welcome surprise for the teachers & students when we return in September! A very sincere thank you to everyone who contributed.
