MIDDLE GROUND BOOK FEST is a book festival where authors, librarians, and educators joined together to create some fun content about middle grade books. We hope to inspire you to read books and to write your own stories, too!
Click here to view the animal stories panel with Celesta and five other middle grade authors: TO SPEAK OR NOT TO SPEAK. Our panel was moderated by Clyde the Coyote! (Panel will be available to view after Aug. 1, 2020 at 3:00 pm EST)
You can watch CELESTA’S AUTHOR INTERVIEW WITH TOWNE BOOK CENTER here. She shares how kids can be elephant advocates, some of her favorite characters in THE ELEPHANT’S GIRL, and where she got the ideas for the book!
Below is a short video Celesta made for students when schools closed in Spring 2020.
“Keep thinking outside the box during COVID-19! I hope you’ll learn all you can by reading good books and writing down your creative ideas. You can visit my YouTube channel at the bottom of this page for more ideas and book recommendations.”
Here you can watch Celesta on a cooking show with her friend, June Williamson!
“June and I talk about delicious food and The Elephant’s Girl! Get an adult’s permission and assistance if you want to try cooking this recipe. You can also read more about June and her cookbook on my FAQ page where I talk about research for The Elephant’s Girl. June is an expert on Thai cooking and a great friend! You’ll see why I love her so much!”
