Carmen Agra Deedy, author of several popular children’s books and a prolific storyteller, is visiting live and in-person with students in all grade levels of both Bolles lower school campuses next week.
She will be on the Bolles Lower School Whitehurst Campus on September 21 to share her journey as a writer and her love of storytelling. On September 22, she heads to the Bolles Lower School Ponte Vedra Beach Campus for a day of storytelling, reading and sharing her passion for books.
Deedy is the author of 12 books for children including “The Library Dragon,” “The Cheshire Cheese Cat,” “Martina the Beautiful Cockroach” and “14 Cows for America,” which is a New York Times bestseller. “The Rooster Who Would Not Be Quiet!” was released in 2017 and “Rita and Ralph’s Rotten Day” was published in March 2020. Deedy’s personal stories first appeared on NPR’s “All Things Considered” and her narratives are culled from her childhood as a Cuban refugee in Decatur, Georgia.
