About the Event

This virtual author visit features Academy Award Nominee, Terri Tatchell! 

Terri Tatchell is a Canadian writer known for her Oscar nominated work on ‘District 9’. Her love for animals and allegory have united in the creation of the ‘Endangered and Misunderstood’ series, giving the underdogs of endangered animals a lyrical voice filled with laughter, adventure and relatable themes.

Terri will spend time speaking with students about the conservation of endangered animals.  She will read Adventures of a Pangopup  from the Endangered and Misunderstood series, a cute story about a naughty young pangolin who thinks he knows better than his mom.  Under the surface, it’s a story about kindness, navigating peer pressure, learning from our mistakes and above all the power of unconditional love. Terri’s other books include Aye-Aye Gets Lucky and Okapi Loves His Zebra Pants.
