Event Description

Our School Garden! is a fictional story about how young Michael, new to the city and the school, experiences the garden through the changing seasons of the school year. He discovers not just how vegetables grow but how a community can grow from a garden.

Rick Swann is a former school librarian and now teaches writing, animation and book making to children for Powerful Schools in Seattle. Our School Garden! marks his picture book debut and he is currently working on a novel for tweens. He loves gardening and likes to remind his students: "Being in a garden is like reading a good book: you’re never sure what is on the next page, but you can’t wait to get there and find out."
