  •  Bloom

    KENNETH OPPEL visits on APRIL 15th:)

     Gurrie Middle School Library, in coordination with the PTO, will proudly welcome author Kenneth Oppel on April 15th through a virtual visit.   Oppel is the author of Bloom, a fictional title that describes a time when invasive species affect the planet, seen through the eyes of three young teens. The plant is described as “tall, black, spiky grass” that starts growing all over the world. The title is a great fit due to the current pandemic conditions and also because 7th graders learn about invasive species within their science curriculum.  

     Oppel will introduce readers to the weird and fascinating world of toxic, invasive and carnivorous plant species. He will also talk about his creative process, from brainstorming, outlining, and successive drafts to finished book.

    Kenneth has offered to send personalized book plates to all students who purchase his book. Books are available through the link below for online ordering. In addition, hybrid students will receive a paper copy of the order form in their ELA classes if they prefer that method of ordering.
