Young adult and children’s fiction writer Katherine Applegate visited Townline and the School of Dual Language today. All fourth and fifth grade students listened to her talk about her books, which include Animorphs, Remnants, Everworld and other book series. She won the 2013 Newbery Medal for her 2012 children’s novel The One and Only Ivan. At one point, she gave the students 10 seconds to use their imagination to invent their own fiction species. Then she asked students to talk about what they imagined. One student said his species was a turtle that had the power to slow everything down around him. She also encouraged students to not be afraid to make mistakes and to follow their passion.
