North Carolina author Sheila Turnage visited Tar Heel Middle School on Tuesday, Oct. 22, to talk to the students about writing and her book ‘Three Times Lucky,’ a Newbery Honor Book on the Battle of the Books reading list this year. The students decorated their classroom doors for the visit. Tar Heel students had a lot of questions about the book. Turnage told the students to stay tuned for more about Mo and Dale in the sequel, ‘Ghosts of Tupelo Landing,’ that will be published in February of 2014.
