Today 3rd-5th graders were lucky enough to have a 45 minute session with author, Donny Bailey Seagraves. She is the author of Gone from these Woods, a book recently published by Random House. Donny’s talk included many details of how she uses her surroundings, memories, and acquaintances to inspire her writing. Students also had an opportunity to ask questions about being an author and about the writing process.
This author visit was made possible from funds from our recent book fair. Thank you for all you do to support our media center. Author visits always inspire students to go back to their writing notebooks and work on crafting great stories. In March, we will have author, Carmen Agra Deedy, who will visit with all students at Barrow.
Donny Seagraves’s book is available for checkout in our media center. It’s a great story for older readers that is a great book to share with a family member and have thoughtful discussions about real-world situations. Check out our pictures from today’s visit.
