WMS was honored to welcome author Terri Libenson on May 5, 2017!  She shared writing and artwork from her new book, Invisible Emmie.  Two students were even challenged to a draw-off on stage and were able to try their hand at drawing the characters Emmie and Katie.  Thank you to our sponsor, Bookbug, for providing our students with this tremendous opportunity!
