The North Country Road Middle School’s book club recently had a special guest visitor. After reading the book The Girl Who Could Not Dream by Sarah Beth Durst, the author joined us at our November 19th meeting.
Ms. Durst was very kind and gracious as she spoke about her life, why she became an author, who inspired her love of reading, what her writing process is like and much more. She then opened the floor to students’ questions, of which there were many, ranging from “how old were you when you realized you wanted to become an author?” (10 years old) to “are you working on a new book?” (yes!).
The students really enjoyed Ms. Durst’s visit and hopefully were inspired to become authors themselves!
