Exciting Authors Visits Blair High School

Blair High Schoolis is thrilled to have two very special writers of Young Adult (YA) literature visiting Blair Feb. 24 and Feb. 26!

Len Vlahos will share about his newest book, The Scar Boys, Mon. Feb. 24, during 3rd period.

Cecil Castellucci, Los Angeles’ de facto YA lit ambassador, has a new book, Tin Star, being released next week, and she will be meeting with Blair students on Feb. 26, during 3rd period. Blair has been trying to get Ms. Castellucci to visit the school for years and is appreciative of Ms. Reyes-Rothner, for organizing the two authors visits.

For those who wants their books signed, Blair’s librarian, Ms. Sara Scribner, has plenty of copies of these authors’ book on hand to sell. For those who will purchase a book, Ms. Scribner will make sure the author signs the copy, even if the book’s owner cannot attend the book talk.

For students whose English class teacher is not going to the author visit but then purchased a book and want to attend, if these students’ 3rd period teacher approves, Ms. Scribner can give them a ticket to the event.

Blair High School, 1201 South Marengo Avenue, Pasadena, (626) 396-5820 or visit blair.pasadenausd.org.
