It is not enough to simply teach children to read; we have to give them something worth reading. Something that will stretch their imaginations—something that will help them make sense of their own lives and encourage them to reach out toward people whose lives are quite different from their own. —Katherine Patterson
Welcome to the revived Books and Breakfast 2016! We are your hostesses - two Library Media Specialists who have felt the loss of the annual breakfast started over 20 years ago by Gertie Geck, beloved media specialist, librarian and bookseller.
Mary Kunesh-Podein is currently a Library Media Specialist at Robbinsdale Middle School after 20 years as an elementary LMS.
Sally Mays is currently an LMS for the Osseo schools at Garden City Elementary school has for over 15 years ignited the passion of young readers.
Our hope is that you will all find yourself mesmerized and entertained by our bounty of talented local children's authors and gifted illustrators. Enjoy a delicious breakfast on a chilly winter's morning, purchase a variety of books to entertain yourself, your students or a young child, chat with your table mates and authors. Know that you are with friends! ~ Mary & Sally
