Elementary students from throughout the Bethpage Union Free School District received a special visit from children’s book author and editor Shana Corey on March 10. Corey stopped by Central Boulevard Elementary School, Charles Campagne Elementary School and Kramer Lane Elementary School to speak with students about her books and her life as an author.
Writer of “Players in Pigtails,” “Milly and the Macy’s Parade,” “The Secret Subway,” and many more, Corey shared her writing process and the journey on getting a book published. She also educated students on the difference between fiction and non-fiction and read some of her book, “The Secret Subway” to classes. At the conclusion of her presentations, students asked Corey questions about her life and more about her books.
The visit was a great way for students to better understand what an author does and inspired them to write their own stories.
