DeSoto Public Library Hosts “Meet the Author” with Shondra Quarles

DESOTO, TX – All are invited to meet author Shondra Quarles on Saturday, November 26th, from 1 pm – 4 pm. Ms. Quarles is the author of The Teacher Who Didn’t Want to Go to School, the story of a teacher who doesn’t want her summer vacation to end. This quirky story confronts a teacher’s fears about the first day of school, and how, when she does go back, the teacher realizes how much she loves teaching. Ms. Quarles describes the book as “a little bit biographical.” Ms. Quarles is the recipient of the 2016 Celebrity Educator award for authoring a book about teachers.

Copies of The Teacher Who Didn’t Want to Go to School will be available for purchase and autographing. The book can also be purchased on Amazon in digital and print formats.

The library is located at 211 E. Pleasant Run Road, in the DeSoto Town Center Complex. Free parking is available in the nearby parking garage. For more information, please call the library at 972.230.9661 or visit the library’s webpage at
