Author Visit Promotes Creativity, Inspiration

As part of its Parents As Reading Partners initiative, Dogwood Elementary School hosted an author visit and workshops with Tracey Delio throughout February.

Delio is the author of the book series “The Secret Adventures of Louie V.”

Delio spoke to students about how even everyday happenings can be turned into an adventure by just using your imagination and creativity. With the younger students, Delio hosted workshops on sharing ideas and working those ideas into a story. In the workshop sessions with older students, Delio worked on the writing and editing process and students even wrote a blog post based on a photo. Delio chose a winning post to be featured on her blog.
