Hello, rossville students! I visited you on a recent November day and spoke to 5th, 6th, 7th and 8th grades.
I spoke to the eighth grade about my book, Auschwitz: Voices from the Death Camp as part of their unit on the Holocaust. The book contains the stories of ten people who were at Auschwitz. I told you about the history of the camp and about the crimes committed there.
I also talked about my book Bodies from the Ash: Life and Death in Ancient Pompeii and gave a PowerPoint presentation about the mummies of Ancient Egypt--all 3,000 years of them, including some very interesting and quite unusual animal mummies. I spoke to fifth graders about my beginnings as a writer.
It was a great day!
Thank you to Mrs. Gick for arranging my visit and her kindness throughout my stay. You have a great librarian!
