For this year's 2021 Writer's Guild, Lausanne Lower School students spent the morning chatting with author/illustrator Brian Pinkey over Zoom and gathered outside throughout the afternoon to enjoy ice cream as they celebrated their writing and illustrating accomplishments.
In class, students have been reading their guest speaker Brian and Andrea Davis Pinkey's book, Ella Fitzgerald: The Tale of a Vocal Virtuosa, while expressing their own creativity through writing, editing, illustrating and publishing hardbacks.
"No matter if you are a writer or illustrator in 2nd grade or writing your 20th book at age 55, the process is very similar," said Lausanne Learning Specialist Joy Stephens. "We use our imaginations, look for 'happy accidents', take risks and share our ideas with the world through words and pictures."
