February 14, 2023

District 56 will host author Eric Litwin on Tuesday and Wednesday, February 21 and 22. Litwin is a song singing, guitar strumming, #1 New York Times bestselling, award-winning author who brings early literacy and music together. He is the original author of the Pete the Cat series as well as the author of The Nuts, Groovy Joe, and The Poop Song.

“Literacy is important and the fact that our students can meet and interact with authors is a wonderful way to encourage the love of literacy,” said Eddie Marshall, Director of Federal Programs and Elementary.

Litwin’s books have sold over 13 million copies, been translated into 17 languages, and won 26 literacy awards including a Theodor Geisel Seuss Honor Award. District 56 is excited to bring the author of some students’ favorite books to District 56 next week. While here, he will visit all three elementary schools.
