Nancy Shakespeare came to our private school two years in a row. Her sessions were engaging with young readers and older elementary students alike. Her talks about her writing process included drafts and illustrations from her original works. Our students came away with a greater knowledge of the creative writing process. Thank you Nancy! Ascension Episcopal School wishes you well!
