Young Adult Author Paul Volponi spent a day with Grades 5-8 at Pomfret Community School on Tuesday, November 19. "Paul Volponi is the author of 11 novels for young adults that are currently being read in high schools and middle schools around the country. Paul visits these classes often, either in-person or via video conferencing, to discuss the novels and encourage students who wish to pursue their own writing." http://www.
Mr. Volponi held writing workshops with each grade throughout the day. One workshop was entitled, "Renaming The Utah Jazz". The students enjoyed the creative writing exercises and perhaps he inspired more than one student to pursue a writing career.
