Author Laurie Halse Anderson Visits TCMS

Laurie Halse Anderson

The TCMS Library hosted award-winning author Laurie Halse Anderson on October 18. 

Laurie's school-wide presentations focused on her development as a writer despite her struggles as a young student, her passion for American history, and her desire to write stories reflecting the complex lives our students actually live.  She also met individually with interested students, spoke with some of our teachers, conducted an interview with the Newspaper Club, and celebrated with her "superfans". 

Thanks to the Monroe County Library System for bringing her to Rochester, and the PTSA and administration for helping fund this opportunity. Thanks also to the PTSA for conducting a book sale of a selection of her books.
