Sara Leach, class of 1989, recently visited the Jr. School Library. She sat down with the Grade 5s to discuss her new book Warm Up, and stayed behind for a book signing.
Warm Up is one of the new Orca Limelights novels, an ongoing series about performing arts (students can check out any of the books in this series in the JS Library).
Sara talked to the Grade 5 girls about her pathway from Yorkie to author. She even showed a picture of her class in Grade 5 at York House! Her advice to aspiring authors is to read and have lots of adventures. You can turn where you live and what you do into great stories!
Now living in Whistler, Sara is an author, a teacher librarian and mother of a son and daughter. She loves to ski and hike in the mountains, which became the setting for her Red Cedar Book Award-winning novel Count Me In.
