Lola Zola Comes to John Muir Elementary School in Santa Monica

Thanksgiving week, just before students break for the long weekend holiday, Marcy Winograd and Jackie Hirtz will visit the Title I public school where literacy is prized, readers abound, and budding writers are finding their voice. The authors will bring copies of their new middle grade book, Lola Zola and Lemonade Crush and 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders will read passages aloud, discuss the story, the characters and the situations they face, and offer predictions on how the novel will turn out.

Students, get ready to catch lemonade fever, guess the secret ingredient, find out Lola’s plan to help her family, and dramatize the lemony story about a sixth grade girl who turns lemons (double lay-offs) into lemonade.  Meet Lola, her BFF Melanie, Lola’s class rival Buck, and Lola’s tail-less tuxedo kitty who says, in Mew language, “This secret lemonade recipe is purr-fect.”
