Awesome Authors Kids’ Book Reviews Are Coming

I am excited to tell you the 2014 Awesome Authors will have kids’ book reviews published once again in the Grand Forks Herald.  Beginning this Sunday, July 20 and running the next several Sundays, we’ll feature these local reviews in the Sunday Accent section.

Awesome Authors is a summer school creative writing class offered, by the Grand Forks Public School District.  Laura Knox teaches the class, for students in Kindergarten through Second Grade.  Class members participate in writing projects, art projects, field trips, and a class blog, which can be found at: or by searching Laura Knox Awesome Authors.

Each summer, students in the Awesome Authors class, tour the Grand Forks Herald offices.  They visit with many Herald staff members to learn about their jobs. The Awesome Authors were invited again this year to write reviews of new and/or popular children’s books. They were thrilled to have this opportunity to share a writing project and the pictures they drew pictures to accompany their reviews.

Thank you Awesome Authors!  We look forward to seeing your published book reviews in the Grand Forks Herald.
