International School of Paris
Hello, 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders! I visited you to talk about how I became a writer and how I research my books. I'm hoping you'll get some ideas about how to do your own research and writing.
I talked about the biggest influences from my childhood: especially a haunted house or two and some scary mummy movies.
You asked so many thoughtful and provocative questions that we could have spent hours talking.
I also shared information about my book, Bodies from the Ice: Melting Glaciers and the Recovery of the Past. I told you about the melting glaciers and what has been discovered. I explained why glaciers are important and why they have been so feared in the past.
Thank you and your librarian, Carol Whitehouse, who arranged this wonderful visit.
