Author’s Fest

Whittier is delighted to host authors Miriam Busch (Grades K-4th) and Chris Rylander (Grades 5th-6th) on April 19th and 21st for the bi-annual PTA Author’s Fest event. Our authors will be speaking to all grade levels, discussing their many published works and talking to our children about writing, books, and how they do the work they love. This is for students only.

Additionally, during Author’s Fest week, we will have two programs open to everyone in the community:

  1. Building Bridges and the DG Area Council of PTAs Author Fest Team present two special guest speakers (including a local author) to discuss using books with children of all ages and ranges of ability, especially those with special needs on Wednesday, April 19thfrom 7 – 8:30 at Hillcrest Elementary School
  2. Author Fest Book signing, featuring SIX authors available for a meet & greet and to sign books, on Friday, April 21stfrom 6 – 8pm at the Downers Grove Public Library Anderson’s Bookshop will be selling books at the library.  A portion of the sales benefits the PTA Council.
