MOUNT VERNON — A group of fourth- and fifth-grade students from the Mount Vernon School District were selected to attend a workshop Tuesday with two-time Newbery Medal winning author Donna Barba Higuera.

Teacher Chad Norman said students in the district were given the chance to write an essay and do various assignments centered on Higuera’s book “The Last Cuentista.”
