Vivian Walsh, author of Olive, the Other Reindeer and Olive My Love, visited the Burnett Library last week on April 25th, 2012. The San Francisco-based children’s author shared a poem that inspired her to become a writer, talked about her creative process, and answered children’s questions about her books and life as an author.

Rooftop thanks Vivian for donating her time to Rooftop and inspiring our children to become writers! In case anyone would like to purchase a signed copy of one of her books for $15, please contact Sarah Cahuas in the Burnett Library at
