We had an excellent author visit last Thursday, Sept. 27, 2007 at our
elementary and middle school campuses. Mr. Rickey Pittman gave a
wonderful presentation for students in grades 3-8. He shared his
knowledge and love of the history of the Civil War time period with the
children. He gave a booktalk about his recently published children’s
book JIM LIMBER DAVIS: A BLACK ORPHAN IN THE CONFEDERATE WHITE HOUSE, played his guitar and sang songs of the Civil War time period, told of his
involvement in reenactments of Civil War Battles, and let the children
view his Civil War artifacts. He encouraged the students to read, write
and do research.
Students and faculty are asking for another visit from Mr. Pittman, so you
know his performance was extra special. IT WAS THAT SPECIAL PROGRAM EACH
LIBRARIAN WANTS THEIR STUDENTS TO EXPERIENCE!!
