Mary Amato at Wheatley Education Campus

Sixth through eighth graders at Wheatley Education Campus celebrated their Literacy Day with a visit by local author–and songwriter–Mary Amato.  Mary shared with the students how personal hardship fueled her creative writing and used the songs woven into her texts to help students hear the rhythm of her poetic writing.  Each of the students received a copy of Guitar Notes and dozens of additional titles of Mary’s were distributed among interested readers and the library.
