Family Fun Reading Night Featured Author: Wayne Thomas Batson
Liberty Christian School’s annual Family Fun Reading Night will be held on Tuesday, March 4th. This event offers students and their families the opportunity to participate in author presentations, book signings, ice cream eating, and fellowship. As one of our presenters, we are excited to welcome back local author Wayne Thomas Batson.
Wayne Thomas Batson is the Bestselling author of fourteen adventure novels, including the fantasy epic Door Within Trilogy and two books in the Adventures in Odyssey The Imagination Station series. A middle school Reading and English teacher for over 20 years, Batson loves to challenge and be challenged by his students.
When he began writing stories to supplement his school district’s curriculum, Batson’s students were so taken by one of the stories that, over a period of years, they pushed him to make it into a full-length novel. The story became The Door Within. Since then, Batson’s students continue to be his frontline editors.
With over a half a million books in print, Mr. Batson believes his books appeal to so many kids and adults because, at a deep level, we all long to do something that matters, and we all dream of another world. To learn more, please visit his blog at http://enterthedoorwithin.blogspot.com/
