Marianne Mitchell, the award-winning author of nine children's books, will talk about reading and writing to third and fourth graders, December 4 and 5, at Bennett IB World School, O’Dea Core Knowledge, Shepardson, and Tavelli.
“I wrote stories and poems for fun when I was a kid. But I had no idea when I was growing up that I would someday be an author,” Mitchell says on her website.
Mitchell tries to connect with students of all ages about her love of writing and brings the writing process to life with her down to earth, practical presentation
Mitchell’s titles include the picture books Joe Cinders, Gullywasher Gulch, and Maya Moon. Her mid-grade novels include Finding Zola and Firebug.
Mitchell’s visit is made possible by the Rotary Read program.
