    Author Visits to EHS

  • We Love to Read!

    Edina Hornets love author visits.  Our readers enjoy learning about the craft of writing and the story behind the story.  Through the years, we've been lucky to meet with a wide variety of authors.​  The EHS Breakfast Book Club has also video chatted with a number of authors, too. Their reading journey is chronicled on the club web site.
     
    Authors, thank you for sharing your time and stories with us!
