Visiting author leaves lasting impression

on October 6, 2017

Visiting author interacts with students during presentationWhat better way to enjoy and connect with a book than to play one of its characters? That was one of the creative ways used by visiting author Sarah Albee to engage sixth graders in the joy of reading and writing.

Visiting author interacts with students during presentationLaughter echoed through the middle school media center during Albee’s interactive and exciting presentation. She brought history to life for our young learners by casting them as the historical figures depicted in some of her books. Students, and teachers alike, were captivated by the author’s own story as she shared what inspired her to become a writer and her passion for storytelling.

Albee writes fiction and non-fiction, children and young adult books. You can meet the author and at the Warwick Children’s Book Festival, this Sat., Oct. 7, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., on Railroad Ave.
