Visiting Author inspires our young writers

Have you ever looked at something and thought to yourself, “Hmmm, What if..?”  Author Jessie Janowitz visited SDJA and spoke with 4th and 5th grade students this past Wednesday.  She is the author of The Doughnut Fix and The Doughnut King. Last week every 4th and 5th grader received a copy of her most recent book, The Doughnut King.  Students are loving the humor she brings to her writing. She explained to our young writers how using a spark of inspiration and asking “What if?” can help you find real life things to write about.  Students left the presentation with some practical advice from this life-observer turned author. Ms. Janowitz encouraged students to write to her with questions and to receive feedback about their writing ideas. We were amazed to hear that she responds to every single child !

Thank you to a generous donor who purchased a copy of the book for every child!
