Students had the opportunity to spend the day with Mr. Bildner, who has written several children’s picture books about sports stars and historical events, as well as young adult fiction. Each of the grades spent time at a workshop with him, learning how to create a book, how to come up with ideas for a book, and learning how to edit their writing pieces.
