  • Young Authors program draws 100 percent participation

    Children’s author Judy Blume claimed, “I always have trouble with titles for my books. I usually have no title until the editor has to present the book and calls me frantically, 'Judy, we need a title.'” Judy Blume should have consulted the winners of the Peoria Public School Young Authors’ competition, creators of compelling, lively stories and illustrations with titles to match. For example, Lyric Beckes of Rolling Acres Middle School named her manuscript, It Ain’t Easy Being Beautiful: The Life and Times of Jeffery the Pig. Carter Lamberson, of Kellar Primary School, wrote about a universal childhood experience in, My First Wiggly Tooth. Washington Gifted School’s Abigail Shearer entices reader’s senses with The Taste of the Wind.
