"In a time when Covid made school budgets tight and author visits incredibly hard to schedule, Kristiana Sfirlea offered an affordable author visit and was flexible for scheduling in person, via zoom, or via recording for all three of our district middle schools...We were also pleased to be able to offer a local Michigan author as part of our celebration."
