Mary Quattlebaum at Dorothy I. Height Elementary School
Typically AOB partners with a school when a teacher or librarian reaches out to our organization. In this case, though, local author Mary Quattlebaum played matchmaker to introduce School Psychologist Shannon Martin to AOB, which led to Mary making three presentations to Shannon’s engaged and respectful fourth graders at Dorothy I. Height Elementary School! The inquisitive students peppered Mary with questions about her inspiration and shared thoughts on their own work as readers and writers. Mary discussed her writing process and a few stories from Together Forever, sharing how her recent work gives voice to those who may not have had their stories told before. Thank you for the introduction, Mary!
