Author’s Visit: Wayne Library

img_3122My brother James, my cousins Zoe and Phoenix, my mom, and I went to the Wayne Library Branch. When we first arrived there, we met a lady. She showed us where to go. Then, we got some food from the summer food bus. Next, we went to a tent. My mom introduced herself and me. My mom started reading my book to us and the other people as we ate lunch. When she finished reading, it was time for questions. Then, I went into the seat and answered questions. One question I was asked was, “How did I make the book?” Another question was, “Why did I make the book?” It was easy answering the questions because I had been asked those questions before. Then, I closed my book. We put our food in our bags, and then we left. My mom gave a copy of my book to the library. I hope to write another book soon!

My First Author’s Visit

On Thursday, April 4th, I read my soon to be published book aloud to my class. My mom brought a digital copy for my class to view while I read. My teacher, Mrs. Smith, gave me the microphone so my class could hear me better. After I finished reading the book, my classmates clapped, and then they started asking me questions. These are a couple questions they asked me, and this is what I said.

1. Why did you choose that topic?

I chose this topic because I went there. I wrote about it because I knew a lot about it.

2. How long did it take for you to finish your story?

It took a long time, almost one year.

My mom started talking about how you publish a book after I answered all of the questions. She is a librarian.  My mom showed my classmates different versions of my story. Then, kids asked my mom questions and even my teacher asked my mom a question.

When it was over, I felt proud of myself because I never read aloud to my class before.

Talk to you soon!
