AES hosts award-winning author Mike Artell to inspire students
Posted on 04/07/2019
AES hosted its annual author visit with award-winning author and illustrator Mike Artell! Born in Louisiana, Artell uses his Cajun influence in his books, such as the Three Little Cajun Pigs and Petite Rouge: A Cajun Red Riding Hood.

Mr. Artell shared his talents of storytelling, illustrating/cartooning, and music with all of the Tiger readers.

"This opportunity was so meaningful and allowed students to experience first-hand inspiration from an actual author/illustrator," said AES Library Media Specialist Julie Gerhardt. "Students were encouraged to read, write, and be creative, which hopefully will make a lasting impression on them throughout their lives. Not only was it fun, but it correlated with academics as well."
