If you have not experienced a Young Authors Day before, it is a fabulous time! The day will start off with a congratulatory message (via video) from author Derek Munson. From there the kids will gather their stories and head to their groups for sharing. This is a cross-age event where students share published pieces of their writing with each other, with the opportunity for positive comments, questions, and discussion.
The event will be wrapped up with a special "High Five" and a "Well Done" during that day's lunch. It's the students, after all, who are the stars of this show! If you are interested in helping with Young Authors Day, you are in luck!
While this is not a "spectator" event, we do need over 30 Group Leaders to make it happen. There are very few requirements .. a love of writing, a positive attitude, and a joy of listening to kids sharing their stories.
More information on how you can get involved with Young Authors Day can be found by contacting any of the three following people: Lara Francisco, Laura Cooper, and Laurie Reed. You might also want to ask your child's teacher if they need any help getting the students' stories "published" and ready to share on the 27th.
