Students at Oak Grove Elementary connected with one of their favorite authors this month using Skype.

K. E. Rocha, author of the “Secrets of Bearhaven” series, visited the school virtually to talk with third-grade students. She shared how she became an author, talked about the detailed research she did for her books and explained how the characters changed throughout her series. She even read the first chapter of “Secrets of Bearhaven” to the students.

At the end of the presentation, Rocha surprised the students by sending each of them a signed copy of her first book of the series.
