As part of our in-house field trip program, the Oak Point PTO is happy to announce that children's author Erin Soderberg will be visiting Oak Point on April 14.  All Oak Point students will have the opportunity to hear Ms. Soderberg talk about her experience as an author. Ms. Soderberg is author of the The Quirks and Puppy Pirates book series for younger children, as well as novels for tweens, teens, and adults.

 

The PTO is extending the opportunity to pre-order copies of Ms. Soderberg's books from the Eden Prairie Barnes & Noble. Pre-ordered books are eligible for a discount and will be delivered to students on April 14. The books you order will be reserved at school specifically for your student(s) so they may be autographed by the author during her visit. Please return the order form and your payment to your student's teacher by March 30.

 

To learn more about Ms. Soderburg and her books, please visit erinsoderberg.com (books for younger children) and erindowning.com (books for tweens, teens, and adults).
