On Wednesday May 6th grades 4 and 5 students at Napan School were warmly welcomed to the Chatham Public Library, Miramichi East, where they went to learn about the process of writing books from Canadian children’s author Anne Renaud of Montreal. Ms Renaud spoke to the students about the research she conducted when writing three non-fiction books for children all of which where on historical Canadian events. Her books are: A Bloom of Friendship; The Story of the Canadian Tulip Festival, Island of Hope and Sorrow; The Story of Grosse Ile, and Pier 21:Stories of Near and Far. Her illustrated talk, well received by the young writers from Napan, encouraged them to create their stories based on their own experiences, family history and personal interests and to be creative and imaginitive when doing the research.
