Visiting author Sharon Draper

IMG_0916 webSharon Draper, the 2012 Sakura Medal chapter book winner for Out of My Mind, spoke to our grade 4 and 5 students on September 10. There was a lot of excitement building up to the visit and Sharon did not disappoint. Sharon proved to be a very entertaining speaker with a great sense of humor that had the theater rolling with laughter. She answered a multitude of questions from the eager audience reminding students that the best way to become a writer is to “read, read, read, read and read” and then “write, write, write, write and write.” (Wouter Laleman, ES Librarian)
