Mia Fantasia, left, along with her mother, Annette Fantasia, a first-grade teacher in the Palmerton Area School District, came out in support of former student and first-time published author, Vincent Tobia. He signed copies of his book, "The Dead Divide Us," at a Meet the Author event at the Palmerton Area Library. It is common for Fantasia to keep things her students have given her throughout the years, and she told Tobia that she still has a Valentine he made for her when she was his first-grade teacher.
