Unique Learning Expereince - Author Robin Moore visits PES and plays his harp!

On Tuesday, Robin Moore, nationally acclaimed writer and storyteller, paid a special visit to Mr. Lichter's and Dr. Swisher's classrooms to talk with the students about writing in general and about his books specifically. Since both classes had heard them as read-alouds this year and were very familiar with these books, he focused on his Bread Sister trilogy and The Man with the Silver Oar.
After captivating the students with magical storytelling, he brought out his Irish harp and took them through a writing activity which involved seeing with both your inner and outer eyes. At the end, he spoke specifically how he had lived in a cabin with no modern appliances for two years while writing his trilogy and emphasized the importance of research and writing from what you know.
