First-graders at St. James Elementary School in the Smithtown Central District had a special visit from author Alyssa Satin Capucilli, who wrote more than 75 books in the “Biscuit” series. Capucilli spoke to the students about the entire process of writing a book – including inspiration, research, writing, editing, and illustrating – and how the finished product is made.  The first-graders took the lessons learned back to the classroom to implement in their writing.
