Karen Luddy Speaks to MHMS & Podcast

Author Karen Luddy visits our Media Center and speaks to a lucky group of 75 kids about her book Spelldown and about having your own writing...and in life.

She read exerpts from the book, related amusing anecdotes from her childhood growing up down south, and signed copies of her book that publisher Simon & Schuster and rep. Mr. Charles Young kindly donated to our kids and to the Media Center.

Our Murray Hill students listened raptly and contributed to a lively discussion of "voice" in literature and in their lives and about the writing process.
It was a lovely visit from a talented, funny, and kind author who spent an afternoon getting to know our kids!
Thanks to everyone who made this special Media Event possible!
