Author, Lubbock ISD alum visits elementary schools

Author Laekan Kemp, a Lubbock native and Wheelock Elementary School alum, passed through the Hub City last week for a book tour and stopped by a few of our elementary schools to read with students, including her former school. She also visited Overton Elementary School, where her mother is the dyslexia teacher, and Hodges Elementary School. Her book tour celebrated the release of her debut middle-grade novel, “Omega Morales and the Legend of La Lechuza.” She hosted a read aloud and book signing with older students and also read her picture book with younger students.
