Local Author Visits 3rd, 4th, 5th Grade Classes


Local author Dianne Spurlock Winstead recently visited during upper elementary chapel to share the writing and book publishing process with MJCA's 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students. Mrs. Winstead writes with her sister, Stacy Spurlock Robbins, under the name The Sisters Spurlock. Unfortunately, Mrs. Robbins was sick on the day of the scheduled visit; however, as an added surprise, Mrs. Winstead brought her niece, Jacqueline, to share her love of books with the students. Jacqueline is a former MJCA student!

The Sisters Spurlock are the authors of I Give You the Olive Tree, a story about the tree and wood used as the cross during the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. The sisters also wrote No Mask, No Home, a story about inclusion. Both books were available for purchase and signing by the authors. 

Local author Dianne Spurlock Winstead discusses her book "I Give You the Olive Tree" with 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students during upper elementary chapel on April 17th. Mrs. Winstead is joined by her niece (and former MJCA student) Jacqueline Winstead, who shared her love of books and writing with the students and faculty.
