Kate Messner is one of the authors who will be at the RI Children's Book Festival this upcoming Saturday, October 19th.  She gave  hardcover books and festival passes to 20 lucky Hampden Meadows students on Friday. 
Kate Messner's book titled Capture the Flag is about three children stranded at a Washington, D.C. airport during a snowstorm.  They find themselves among many strange characters when they find out that the flag that inspired "The Star Spangled Banner" has gone missing.  Will they find the thief in the airport? 

A morning announcement was made about Kate Messner's free giveaway on Friday and I got swamped with entries from eager students.

The best part of the week was delivering books to the lucky winners in their classrooms!
