A Testimonial about Ty Allan Jackson
“We recommend a visit by Ty Allan Jackson with the greatest enthusiasm. He will energize the students, inspire less accomplished readers, and present an image of an author as a “rock star” in a way that connects reading and writing to the kind of fan enthusiasm one sees in music or sports. And that is exactly how Ty envisions our future: one where kids are as smitten with authors as they are stars. We totally agree.”
-Joelle Brookner, Principal, Williamstown Elementary School
