Grace Christian Hosts Author
Grannie Snow, author of the Silas Series, visited Grace Christian School on September 30. The Silas Series of books are beautiful picture books completely produced in Vermont. Grannie read aloud ‘Big Ole Striped Silas’ with children in kindergarten through fourth grade, and then spoke with them about being an author, finding an editor, the tasks of a graphic designer, the importance of the illustrator, and finally, a bit about printing. Grannie emphasized the importance of doing things locally, and is proud of her self-published Vermont book series. The children remained engaged and attentive during the whole visit, and asked questions about the pictures, the real animals that inspired her, the illustrator, and the characters in the books.
