Sno Ball Day

Alex McConduit reads his book, Snowballs For All, as students chant the book's title each time it appears in the story. While participating in the reading, each student receives one free sno ball from a local vendor. Afterwards, students learn about rhyming words and poetry. Alex discusses the history of Sno Balls in New Orleans and why they are unique to Southeast Louisiana.  At the end of each session, McConduit talks about how he became an author and stresses the importance of ideas, reading and writing in everyday life.

About Alex McConduit

Alexander Brian McConduit is a writer and entrepreneur born and raised in New Orleans, LA. In 2010, Alex McConduit founded Big Boot Books and published his first book, The Little Who Dat, Who Didn’t.  In 2012, McConduit published his second book, Snowballs for All, a children’s rhyming book about a young boy's adventurous search for snowballs. Later that year, he also founded W.R.I.T.E., a youth publishing program that transforms students in New Orleans into published authors. Since 2010, Alex has visited more than 100 schools throughout the gulf coast to share his books and to encourage kids to read, write and follow their dreams. For these efforts, Alex was honored as one of Gambit Magazine’s Top 40 Under 40 for the year of 2012. In 2013, Alex was selected as an honorary board member for First Book of GNO, an organization that provides new books to children in need, addressing one of the most important factors affecting literacy; access to books. McConduit’s newest book, Thorn in My Horn, was released late June 2013. The illustrations in Thorn in My Horn are accompanied by music written specifically for each scene so kids can read and play the music in the book.
