School Visit at the Brawerman School
A week ago I had a wonderful author visit at the Brawerman School in West Los Angeles where I talked to a very enthusiastic audience of fourth, fifth and sixth graders. I gave a slide presentation which was followed by a question period. I was impressed by the quality of the students’ questions which varied from wanting to know more about my books to interest in the process of research and being an author. Perhaps some of these students will become authors some day! Librarian Karen Morgenstern did an excellent job of planning and coordinating the day. Afterward she gave me a tour of the school where I had a chance to visit the art studio, science lab, library, and saw displays of student work in the hallways. To celebrate reading, one bulletin board displayed each staff member’s favorite book as a child. I asked Karen what her favorite book was: Nancy Drew. The Nancy Drew mysteries were among my favorite books too!
