Storytime with Linsey Davis From ABC News
Our Lady of Lourdes School

New York, NY 10031
Age recommendation: 5-10
In honor of Catholic Schools Week, the annual celebration of Catholic education throughout the United States, first-, second- and third-grade students will meet Linsey Davis, ABC News correspondent and author, who will read her new book "The Smallest Spot of a Dot: The Little Ways We’re Different, the Big Ways We’re the Same."
Linsey Davis is an Emmy-Award winning ABC News correspondent, filing reports for World News, Good Morning America, 20/20 and Nightline. She has covered major news stories around the globe, and is excited to share her story, a playful and poignant picture book that celebrates how we are all part of the human race.
Students will receive a copy of the book.
Davis’ visit is presented by Page Turners, a program of Champions for Quality Education, which promotes the literary arts by bringing celebrated authors into inner-city schools. Novelists, poets, non-fiction writers, advertising executives, illustrators and technical writers leave students with a tool chest to start their own creative community at school. Since its inception, Page Turners has coordinated dozens of authors with inner-city Catholic schools in the Archdiocese of New York and donated over 1,000 books to students.
