Batesville Intermediate School's Arts in Education program hosted award-winning author Barb Rosenstock on February 5, 2019. She presented her book Otis and Will Discover the Deep to 3rd & 5th graders and The Camping Trip That Changed America to 4th graders. Her interactive, highly engaging presentations showed how interesting research, writing and her book subjects can be! She also led two well-received writing workshops in 4th grade classrooms.
The day after she left Batesville, Barb was honored with a Golden Kite Award for Otis and Will Discover the Deep. U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor presented the award at the Golden Kite Gala in New York City!
