Writing Festival Fun by Avy

Today we got to spend the day at Calvin College for a Writing Festival.  There were two authors that we got to hear speak.    Jim Murphy and 3 time Caldecott winner David Wiesner.  To prepare for the seminar we had to write a story or a poem.  I wrote both.  We also read a lot of books from the library by the authors.

Last night, my friend Eliza, got to spend the night at our house, because she was taking the day off of school and coming to the Writing Festival with us.

It was surprising to me that we sat just a few rows away from my next door neighbor, Sarah.  Asher got to bring his friend Ben.  This is Asher and Ben with author Jim Murphy.  We’ve been listening to his book The Great Fire, the story of the Chicago Fire, on CD.  The book is very interesting.

This is David Wiesner.  He tells stories by drawing pictures.  He is a great author and illustrator.  This is a picture from his book Tuesday. We had an awesome time!
