Author's visit with 5th 6th Grade Writing Clubs

Thanks to Charlotte Agell, writing club(s) advisor, for this fascinating update:

Author Julia O'Brien-Merrill recently visited the 5th/6th Grade Writing Clubs, which combined for this exciting event. Twenty-three students enjoyed learning about the origins of the Charlie on the MTA song -The Man Who Never Returned! This was part history lesson, part author visit, part music session. Here's a link to the author's site featuring her book, Charlie on the MTA: Will He Ever Return? The song was a direct result of Ms. O'Brien-Merrill's father's mayoral candidacy in Boston, during the McCarthy era. It's very much a picture book for all ages.
