Our Strategic Vision

A Halloween Listening Party with Adam Gidwitz


All Third, Fourth, Fifth and Sixth Grade families are cordially invited to a Listening Party to celebrate the release of Adam Gidwitz’s debut podcast, Grimm, Grimmer, Grimmest!

Author Adam Gidwitz

Adam will be coming to celebrate the exciting release with BFS children and families on Tuesday October 30th. The celebration will be held in the Lower School Library from 6:00pm to 7:30pm.

Last spring BFS students in the third, fourth and fifth grades had the opportunity to participate in the recording of Grimm, Grimmer, Grimmest with Adam in our very own BFS Library.  Our students are featured in the podcast, listening to Adam’s live storytelling, asking questions and reacting with their thoughts and feelings.

At the Listening Party we will listen to one of the podcast episodes, hear an original story told by Adam himself, participate in a Q&A with Adam and the crew, as well as enjoy refreshments.

RSVP to the event is required by Monday, October 22nd.
