Vermont Author Visits Our School

On November 17, Morrisville, Vermont resident Grannie Snow visited Newport Town School. Snow is the author of a series of picture books entitled “The Adventures of Silas and Opal”, the third of which was just released a few months ago and the fourth of which is on its way. The books feature Snow’s cats Silas and Opal, the first of whom was adopted from an animal shelter and the second of whom was adopted from a house full of cats.

Snow read her books to and discussed them with an assembly of kindergarten through 3rd graders. After her presentation, Amy Mariotti of the Pope Memorial Frontier Animal Shelter in Orleans presented about the importance of animal adoption.
