Children’s Author Visits Kings Glen Elementary
Children’s author, Virginia Reader’s Choice nominee, and Greenbriar East assistant principal Natalie Lorenzi visited Kings Glen Elementary to discuss her books and the writing process. Lorenzi presented to each grade level about her process of turning ideas into stories and how she has integrated her own personal experiences into two award-winning books (Flying the Dragon and A Long Pitch Home). She provided humorous and interesting examples of the kinds of research she has done for her books, shared formulas that students can use for conveying stories, and discussed some of her own inspiration. Perseverance was also a theme in Lorenzi’s visit, as she discussed the importance of getting feedback on writing and being willing and open to revise writing.
