On November 21, 2013, our middle schoolers will have the opportunity to meet with author Cynthia Lord. Ms. Lord is the author of five books, including the 2007 Newbery Honor and Schneider Family Award Winner, Rules. Ms. Lord’s visit to Grand Rapids was sponsored by Kent District Library and our invitation comes through the generous financial support of The Cascade Friends of the Library. The presentation/workshop will be approximately 45 minutes and students need to find their own transportation to and from Central Middle School.
When Ms. Lord meets with our students, she will discuss her approach to writing, often referred to as “writer’s craft.” Specifically, she’ll talk about where her ideas come from, how she develops an idea, she will show students the book draft, complete with editor’s notes, and tell a story about the cover of her book, Rules.
