Pitman author Jason R. James visited Pitman Middle School's Sixth Graders on Thursday, February 23.  Each sixth grader read his book, Kira, the Rainbow Princess while studying author's craft and purpose.  James articulated his writing struggles, successes, and author choices throughout the presentation.  Students enjoyed the characters' favorite foods such as pizza, waffles, and "snoozeberries."

We are grateful to Mrs. Morton for the delicious chocolate-chip cookies and to the PEF for the grant to partially purchase the 86 books James personalized at the event.​​ 
In response to the novel, students were encouraged to create an accompanying bookmark for a contest judged by Mr. James. Abagail Post and Harry Tartaglia are the talented new owners of Kira t-shirts. Congratulations!  With so many artistic sixth graders, Mr. James had a tough time choosing.
