Bayside Middle School has been hosting their annual Reading Week for ten years or so, each year instroducing every student to authors, illustrators, and storytellers. Over the years I've presented writing workshops, author talks, and 'Lunch With the Author and her Pony' sessions... This year all the Grade 8s (about 250 of them) gathered in the multi-purpose room while I told one of my favourite stories in the King Arthur series - The Marriage of Sir Gawain. Thanks are due to librarian Vivian Hicks and all the staff and students at Bayside who make this such a fun annual event! Hope to see you again next year!
