Virtual Author Visit | Linda Grace Smith

May 25, 2021 @ 9:30 am - 10:15 am PDT


As long as there’s one who opens the way
to read and to write, to learn and to play.

This virtual author visit will feature children’s author and educator, Linda Grace Smith.  Linda will be joining us to read her book, One Too Many.

One Too Many kindly and capably addresses social issues surrounding poverty, education, and safety. It is hopeful, creative and empowering. By turning towards those in need instead of away, simple acts of care can make a big difference. It is the perfect launch into learning about social justice in action.
