We were so excited to have a Skype call with author Lauren Tarshis! The author of the "I Survived" series talked to our third, fourth, and fifth graders about her writing process; how she decides which historic events she chooses to write about; and what authors inspire her. She was so kind, the students asked great questions, and we had a great discussion! The next installment in the I Survived series will focus on the eruption of Mt. St. Helens and will feature a girl on the cover for the first time in the series.
Thanks to Lauren for an enjoyable afternoon!
