Previous visitors have included: Jason Chin, Stuart Gibbs,  Chris Grabenstein, Jerry Pallotta, Gordon Korman, James Ponti, Aaron Reynolds, and Sarah Weeks. The inimitable Nathan Hale, author of the non-fiction, graphic novel, bestselling series, Hazardous Tales, has been to Oakridge TWO times.  Aaron Reynolds will be back in 2024!
