The author will provide three grade specific presentations that include discussions about all aspects of the writing process: writing, researching, working with illustrators, designing, editing and publishing books. He will encourage students to explore a variety of writing genres that include math and science. In the evening, he will lead a session to provide parents with the tools needed to support reading and writing at home.
