Mrs. Deborah Napier’s 4th grade summer school class from Charlotte Elementary participated in the Charlotte Public Library’s free Writer’s Workshop led by Texas native author Sara (Barnard) Harris on June 8. Students asked Harris questions about her career as a writer and then were given the chance to create their own handmade books out of notebook paper to write their own stories on. Pictured above are students in Mrs. Napier’s class with Harris, her family and Charlotte Librarian Marianne McGinnis and her two children.
After the writer’s workshop concluded, students were able to get their handmade books signed by Harris and her family. Some students even asked her to sign their book of poems they put together during the school year.
