The Kent Center School second grade will host world-renowned children's author Judi Barrett next Friday, April 11 in the school library.

Barrett, author of many books, including "Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs" and "Pickles to Pittsburgh," will spend the morning with students.

Students created food art during art class to hang from the ceiling and transform the school library into Barrett's imaginary town of Chewandswallow.

Barrett will read some of her books, share how she creates books, and answer questions from the students.

The visit is sponsored by the Kent Center School PTO.
