Author Visit - Amie Kaufman
Last Friday our Year 7 students participated in an author visit by young-adult author, Amie Kaufman. During the talk Amie shared about her writing journey and the books she has published. Students had an opportunity to ask Amie questions about being an author and the books she has written.
Our school library has many of Amie's published books - students are welcome to borrow these.
