Bestselling author Trudy Ludwig coming to McMinnville!
Posted on 01/11/2019

Students at Grandhaven and Wascher elementary schools will have the opportunity to spend time with children’s advocate and award-winning author Trudy Ludwig.

Ludwig will lead two student assemblies,  broken out by age group, at each school. She will read one of her books to the audience and discuss the story and the characters’ roles. Through engaging, age-appropriate activities and role-play with the author, the students will learn important life skills related to making healthy friendship choices.

Ludwig will visit Wascher on Wednesday, Jan. 23.  In addition to the student assemblies, Ludwig will offer a parent presentation, “Understanding Our Kids’ Online & Offline Social World: Friendships, Cliques & Power Plays.” The presentation will take place from 6:30 to 7:45 p.m. in the school’s library. Pizza will be served at 6 p.m. in the cafeteria, and childcare will be provided. This event is funded by the Wascher PTA.

On Thursday, Jan. 31, Ludwig will bring her student assembly presentations to Grandhaven in an appearance funded by a teacher mini-grant from the McMinnville Education Foundation.

Ludwig has been featured on ABC’s “Good Morning America,” PBS’s “Keeping Kids Healthy,” Wall Street Journal, Huffington Post, Reading Rainbow, the National Crime Prevention Council’s Circle of Respect program, and has served as an expert panel member on Sesame Workshop’s video series addressing bullying.

Her books ("My Secret Bully," "Just Kidding," "Sorry!," "Trouble Talk®," "Too Perfect," Confessions of a Former Bully," "Better Than You," "The Invisible Boy," "Gifts from the Enemy" and "Quiet Please, Owen McPhee!") have received international praise for helping children connect and engage with their peers in kind, caring ways.
