Eight Cousins Books and Falmouth Public Schools presented Alex Gino, the author of George on Tuesday night in the Morse Pond School library. The night began with an author dinner and the love for George was everywhere. From grade school music teachers to Falmouth school librarians, to Osterville kindergarten teachers; everyone was excited to talk with Alex about George.

The book talk began with a Morse Pond student reading her extremely well written book review on George. Author Alex Gino introduced both the book and the character George before reading a passage in which George, who identifies as Melissa practices to audition for the part of Charlotte in Charlotte’s Web. Gino described the writing process, hopes for the book and what may be coming next. A question and answer session after the reading allowed teachers, parents and students to learn a little more about the character they already loved so much. IMG_4458
