Award-winning children’s book author Brian Heinz visited with third graders at Mt. Pleasant Elementary School on Jan. 14. Mr. Heinz spoke to students about the book writing and publishing process by using reenactments of his real-life experiences. Students learned the methods he uses when researching possible book topics and the importance of using the five senses to develop and incorporate descriptive language in writing. During his in-class workshops, Mr. Heinz used a “road map”-style mural board and dozens of visual aids to teach students how a book becomes reality from raw ideas to a finished product.
