Posted by Paula Paine on May 20, 2011 in children, Community, "Current Students", Events, literature, "School of Education", "The College" More than 1,000 third, fourth and fifth graders, the largest group in the event’s history, swarmed the Ottawa University campus on March 10 to participate in the 10th annual Franklin County Children’s Literature Festival. Students heard stories new and old, had books autographed, learned illustrators’ secrets, and enjoyed an overall reading extravaganza. Ottawa University education majors assisted with the event, which featured children’s author David Greenberg, author and illustrator Brad Sneed, illustrator Laura Huliska-Beith, author David Nieves, and storyteller Priscilla Howe, among others.
