Today, author Adam Gidwitz of the books, A Tale Dark and Grim and In a Glass Grimly, visited YIS and spent time with the grades 4 and 5 students. He talked about fairy tales and his writing. He told stories and captivated everyone for almost an hour. Some students screeched when he retold the original Cinderella. His books take Grimm’s fairy tales and weave them together. They’re funny, gruesome and perfect for this age group. His books will be on order through a YIS order form, and he has said he will sign each copy of the book. Ask students about him tonight and start reading!
