Local Childrens Author Teaches and Reads to Students Submitted: 03/25/2011
Rhinelander - Students at Northwoods Community Elementary School were treated with a visit from one of their favorite writers today.

Author of children's stories, Susie Sawyer, was signing plenty of autographs and giving out lots of hugs today after sitting down with the kids.

She enjoys reading and teaching them different ways to write. "I hope they left today with some new enthusiasm for writing and for reading as well."

Some of Sawyer's works were published in books such as "Say Goodnight to Illiteracy".

The kids had plenty of questions for her today and were very eager to hear her read.

The school will also have other local authors sitting down with the kids in the near future as part of their "Meet the Author" program.
