Teachers get star-struck when we get to meet authors of our favorite books and attend conferences with speakers that have been professional mentors. Last Saturday I got to attend a workshop by Georgia Heard, an author and member of Columbia Teachers College Reading and Writing Project. I absolutely love to teach children how to write and have been inspired to do so by studying books by authors like Georgia.
Next week we will have an author visit from Carson Ellis. Ellis is an artist and the illustrator of Wildwood books and has just written her first book Home. Her debut book is about various types of homes around the world. The book gets released this week. If you'd like to get your own signed copy there are order forms available in the QAE library.
