Noelle Kalipetis, author of three published fantasy novels and winner of a national Amazon.com book award, returned to Glen Meadow Middle School Library to inspire students to read and write. Earlier this month, the school’s library hosted Kalipetis’s visit. She told the children her own story of growing up in Vernon and talked about her struggles as she worked to become an author. Kalipetis read excerpts from her novels, encouraged students to read books from the school library, study hard and pursue college. Photo provided by Julie Muehe
