Imagining Beyond Your Circumstances

QMS PAC is sponsoring a visit to QMS by author/illustrator Jarrett Krosoczka on Friday, December 4. Jarrett is an award-wining author and illustrator of more than 25 books for children, including the Lunch Lady graphic novels and Platypus Police Squad novel series for middle-grades. He’s given a very successful TEDx talk about how he persevered to overcome challenges he faced in his childhood, and this theme of “Imagining Beyond Your Circumstances” is the focus of his talks at QMS. Jarrett will speak to students in all three grades and also will hold a special workshop for students in the art club, creative writing club, Book Chat, and the Hornets Hive literary magazine. Check out his TEDx talk below.
