Mrs. McKissack connected to 5 schools today via videoconference to talk about ber book, The All-I’ll-Ever-Want Christmas Doll

Patricia McKissack welcomed schools from Canada, Tennessee and Louisiana today during her story hour videoconference on The All-I’ll-Ever-Want Christmas Doll. She said it was a delightful group of students from across North America- in addition to talking about the story, they discussed their regions. At West Haven Elementary in Alberta, Canada, it was negative ten degrees- but a warm up for them! The kids in Louisiana from the Tangipahoa School District were experiencing temps in the 40s, and the students at East Side Elementary in Shelbyville, Tennessee, like us in St. Louis, had mid-20s and light snow.

Don’t forget that in addition to her three part writing series and story hour sessions, Pat McKissack still offers her “talk shop” videoconferences on historical fiction and science fiction.

These one hour programs are for middle school and high school students, and will be available upon request. During the videoconference, Pat will talk with students on the ins-and-outs of writing either historical fiction or science fiction. Where does the writer start? What kind of brainstorming techniques does she find most useful? How does Pat research for her books? These questions, plus more, will be discussed between author and students.

This videoconference is $200* for New Links to New Learning members and $250* for nonmembers.
