Visiting Authors

Telesis is unique in that we have a partnership with a local bookstores..  Oftentimes, when new children's books are released, the bookstore will send the Author tor visit Telesis.  During that visit, the author's speak to their childhood, growing up, their love for writing, how they became an author, and no visit would be complete without their college history.  Oftentimes after the presentation, if the author will visit the classroom they are alum to and do a more personalized Q and A session with the our Titan Scholars.  All of our students from Transitional Kindergarten through Eighth grade are afforded the opportunity to see and hear from at least one author throughout the school year.  After they present, the students have the option of purchasing their new book personalized with a signature and snip it from the authors themselves.  Some of the Author's that have visited include...
