Young Authors

When Ley Yeager became principal at Vista del Valle in 1991, he implemented Young Author’s Day – a celebration of children’s writing. Each student at the school writes and illustrates a book for the event. Although he retired six years ago, the event lives on. Vista celebrated the 25th annual Young Author’s Day last Friday.

Students read their books to each other.

A local author or illustrator visits campus to talk about the craft of writing or illustrating. This year the LA illustrator Rodolfo Montalvo presented his work to students.
