Fall 2020 Reopening FAQs and Resources

Author Visit with Shannon Hale This October

Welcome back to what is sure to be a great new school year!  We’re excited to kick things off this Fall with a very special visit from award-winning author Shannon Hale.

You may know Shannon Hale from her Newbery Honor-winning book, Princess Academy.  Earlier this month the sequel to that book, Palace of Stone, was released and has already made it on the NY Times Bestsellers list.  Check out the book trailer below:

Shannon will be visiting 4th through 8th grade students on Monday, October 1 at 1:00pm.  In a cool twist on things, the event will be filmed for a LIVE webcast.  That means your friends and family can register here and watch from home, work, anywhere.  So in addition to our live audience at BFS, the virtual audience will get a chance to ask questions and have them answered by Shannon, too.  It’s going to be awesome!

For all the details you could possibly want, read my letter to families.  To order her books in advance and have them signed, fill out the book order form and bring payment to any BFS librarian by Wednesday, September 26th.  To learn more about Shannon, her thoughts on writing and her books, visit her official website:
