On January 9, Pictou Landing First Nation School hosted a Writers In The Schools visit by local author Maureen Hull.
Maureen has authored such children’s books as Lobster Fishing on the Sea, The View From a Kite, Rainy Day with Bear, and WIld Cameron Women.
Organized by Grade 3/4 teacher, Kim Dorrington, and sponsored by the Writers Federation of Nova Scotia and Mi’kmaw Kina’matnewey, this day gave students the opportunity to meet a published author, hear her read from her work, and have them be mentored by Maureen in their own writing efforts.
The Writers Federations of Nova Scotia fosters creative writing in the Province of Nova Scotia; provides advice and assistance to writers at all stages of their careers; encourages greater public recognition of Nova Scotian writers and their achievements; and enhances the literary arts in our regional and national culture.
A note from Maureen:
“Thank you so much for inviting me to PLFN School. Thank you for being such wonderful listeners and entertaining speakers. I enjoyed our conversations very much and it was a pleasure to spend time with you. Wela’lioq.”
PLFN looks forward to the next visiting author on February 4, children’s author/illustrator, Richard Rudnicki.
