Former Beebe Elementary School teacher, Julie Oleszek always had a passion for writing, inspired by her students, she decided to follow that dream and write a young adult novel.
The book is the story of a young girl greatly affected by a traumatic event that happens to her family. Even though she isn’t teaching, she still hopes young readers learn a lesson from the book,
“I want them to laugh with these characters but more importantly I want them to learn a lesson that they can take with them in their lives,” Oleszek said.
Beebe invited Oleszek back recently to give a presentation on her book, and host a book signing for the new author.
She is currently working on a second book, and has been asked to write a sequel to the fifth floor.
