Michael Buckley - the Author!

Author Michael Buckley, creator of the Sisters Grimm and Nerds book series, charmed the fifth graders with stories of his many adventures and his work on television shows like Rugrats, Late Night with David Letterman and The Fairly Oddparents. I think many kids were inspired to become writers after his chat with us!
