The Newburgh Enlarged City School District’s Gidney Avenue Memorial School hosted author Robin Newman for Family Literacy Night on Tuesday.
Newman met with students and their families to describe her writing process and what it is like being an author. She then shared her book No Peacocks with those in attendance.
The audience engaged in hands-on activities based on the story. Students were able to take home bags full of reading goodies and books. Five students won prizes including a toy Hess truck or pillow book holders, which were handmade by 4th grade teacher Mrs. Kover.
