Rob Buyea, a 1995 graduate of Canastota Central Schools will come home on Friday, March 18th to speak at the Canastota Public Library! At 7pm on March 18th, the library will open for a special presentation and book reading by Rob. Rob's first published book, "Because of Mr. Terupt" is the story of a new teacher and six of his students. Told by the students, the story illustrates how one teacher can change the lives and thoughts of students!
"Because of Mr. Terupt" received a Starred Review from School Library Journal and was selected as a New Voices Pick by the Association of Booksellers.
Since the publication of "Because of Mr. Terupt", Buyea has sold the sequel to the same publisher. At this book reading, Barnes and Noble will be on hand to sell copies of the book and Buyea will stay to autograph books!
