Author Inspires Young Readers at MS 202 1

On Wednesday, Nov. 13, sixth-grade students at MS 202 had the pleasure of meeting author Zetta Elliott. Ms. Elliott shared some of the inspiration for her books and where her ideas for stories come from with her eager audience. The author answered questions about the business of publishing and encouraged students to read — and write — stories that reflect their own interests and backgrounds. It was truly an amazing day, one the students and staff will never forget, nor Ms. Elliott, hopefully.
