A Morning with Popular Children’s Author Anthony D. Fredericks

Sunday, March 18th - 11:00-11:45

Come join popular and award-winning children’s author (and one of York’s own) Anthony D. Fredericks as he shares his latest children’s book (Tall Tall Tree) as well as several other best-sellers. The program is designed for kids (and adults who are young at heart) of all ages. Enjoy a morning full of laughter, overflowing with storytelling, and packed with surprises. Copies of Tony’s books will be available for sale (autographs are free.)

Anthony D. Fredericks worked as a classroom teacher and reading
specialist for many years. In 1987, he became professor of education at York College of Pennsylvania. For 30 years (he’s now retired), he taught undergraduate classes in reading, science, children’s literature, as well as several writing courses. A popular and energetic visiting author at elementary schools throughout North America, he is also a dynamic keynote speaker at numerous writing conferences and conventions.

He’s a prolific author having published over 50 children’s books. His
books include an array of titles including Under One Rock; Desert
Night, Desert Day; Elephants for Kids; The tsunami Quilt; and his
latest book (2017) Tall Tall Tree. His children’s titles have won numerous awards, citations, and commendations. When he’s not working at his computer or leading writing workshops he
can be found paddling his kayak on quiet lakes or visiting his children (and grandchildren) in England and Colorado. He lives with his wife Phyllis and a (slightly) rotund cat named “Tubby” in Dover, PA. Please check out his web site at www.anthonydfredericks.com.
