Today, Deborah Wiles came to Lovett to speak to students about personal narrative writing. Third, Fourth, and Fifth Graders learned about how Ms. Wiles writes from her personal experiences .
Her picture book Freedom Summer began from her memories of growing up in the Civil Rights era. And, some of the characters in Aurora County All-Stars take inspiration from the earliest African-American baseball players. Students and teachers were actively engaged in discussion and thoroughly enjoyed hearing her read, Freedom Summer aloud in the Chapel.
