Last week I spoke to the students in grades 5 and 7 at Alton Central School about my book, "The House at the Top of the Trees", the writing process, and also the publishing process.
Yesterday I spoke to the 8th grade classes and today I spoke with the boys and girls in the 6th grade. They all seemed very interested and had a lot of great questions. Sometimes we were lead in a different direction but it was wonderful to see so much interest in my presentation. One class in particular had so many questions that I finally had to stop them so that I could finish my presentation before we ran out of time.
This was a great learning experience for me and I hope to contact other local schools to share what I've learned through writing and publishing my first book.
