During Book Week we had a visit from Bali Rai, a famous author of books for children and teens. He talked to all groups from Grade 4 to Grade 10 on many topics, like diversity and multiculturalism, reading for pleasure and the importance of being open minded when writing. The students enjoyed the talks and asked Bali Rai many questions, not only about the books that they had previously read in English class, but also about his experience as a writer whose audience is young people.
At the end of the day, Bali Rai did a book signing and many students took the opportunity to ask a few more questions as they were getting his books autographed. It was a fantastic experience for all involved. Thank you to Bali Rai for his time and to the librarians for organizing the visit!
