March 5 was a special day for the students attending Winton Woods Primary South. The wee warriors enjoyed a complimentary visit with New York Times best-selling author Sherri Duskey Rinker, courtesy of Joseph-Beth Booksellers and the outstanding effort of district media specialist Michelle Sisk. The author shared her love of books, how she became an author and the process of turning her story into a published book. She also left the students with an important message based on her experiences as an author: “practice, practice, practice makes perfect or at least better.” Following the presentation, Mrs. Rinker autographed copies of her books for students and teachers who purchased copies of her incredible story.
