Hadley Author Visit September 15 - Renowned Actor Jason Segel 

Most parents would know Jason Segel best through his role on the hit TV show How I Met Your Mother and his role in the movie Forgetting Sarah Marshall, but Hadley Junior High students know Jason Segel as a children's author. Thanks to a partnership with Anderson's Bookstore, Mr. Segel will be visiting Hadley to talk with 6th and 7th graders (and interested parents!) about the latest book in his Nightmares! Series of books for middle schoolers,
The Lost Lullaby, on Thursday, September 15 at 2:00 p.m.

Thank you to Hadley parent Tammy Glynn for bringing this opportunity to our students. It is an opportunity they will never forget!
