Who Am I? (Summer Reading Challenge)

silhouetteHow well do you know your authors?

This summer we will be playing, “Who Am I?”

You will get 5 clues, and a picture of the author. Guessing the author’s name, and reading a book (of your choice) by that author will get you entered for a great prize.

You can enter as many times as you want. We have selected many authors, and all the authors can be found in the library.
