  • Kwame Alert!

    Posted by Melissa Light on 10/12/2020

    Anyone who pays attention, knows that I am a fan of Kwame Alexander. I love his books and he is such a huge supporter of ELA teachers and librarians - well how could you not! 

    So when there is an opportunity to see or hear him speak, I try to take advantage. Last week I watched a chat with Kwame Alexander, Kwame Mbalia and Jerry Craft on Facebook. Kwame A. even read my question for Jerry Craft! I admit it, I fangirled when Kame said my name :)

    The latest reading will be featured on Instagram Live.

    Kwame Alexander reads Becoming Muhammad Ali

    Am I fangirling yet?

  • What is Ms. Light Reading Now?

    Posted by Melissa Light on 10/12/2020

    So I decided to do something I normally don't do, and I read an adult book. I just finished The Book of Two Ways by Jodi Picoult. I did enjoy reading this book but I can't wait until my latest shipment of books from Permabound arrives. Jerry Craft's Class Act and Tristan Strong Destroys the World by Kwame Mbalia will be in the shipment. I just have to be patient until that arrives. But until then, I will continue reading Radium Girls by Kate Moore.

Scholastic Book Fair


  • Sad to say, but Onslow County will not be participating in the Battle of the Books competition this year. With the logistics of setting up practices and competition in our hybrid schedule, it was decided that BoB would be put on hold for a year.
