Student Author Night with Beth Saulnier ’84
Written by Christy Richardson on April 18, 2013
We are thrilled that Student Author Night (optional and always popular) has arrived! The fun begins tonight, Thursday, April 18th, at 5:30 PM.
We’re delighted that mystery writer Beth Saulnier, Pine Cobble class of ’84, will speak.
Saulnier is the author of the Alex Bernier mystery series, which Booklist called “excellent.” Kirkus calls heroine Alex Bernier “delightful,” and Publisher’s Weekly said, “Saulnier writes with a breezy freshness that’s fun and appealing, and her heroine is fast talking, irreverent, and wholly likable. ”
Student author night involves students from first through ninth grade reading their own works in a small group setting.
At Pine Cobble School, careful reading and outstanding writing are integrated into all aspects of the curriculum at every grade level. Students are exposed to a broad range of literature and are presented with opportunities to write many different works — fiction, non-fiction, prose, poetry, plays, letters, expository writing, reports, persuasive essays, biographies, and more. Strong emphasis is placed not only on the initial work, but also a thoughtful, exacting multi-step editing process, as well.
