As part of Kate Messner’s visit, students will learn about the writing process from the perspective of a published author. Students will see how the writing process they go through in school — brainstorming, researching, planning, drafting and editing– is similar to the steps taken by this well-known children’s author.

Kate Messner will share how authors, editors, copyeditors and illustrators work as a team to publish a book. Students will have an opportunity to ask the author live questions during this completely free, special event.
