Author Betty Birney visits at Bird Rock Elementary

Acclaimed author, Betty Birney, author of the Humphrey series, spoke with second through fourth graders recently at Bird Rock Elementary. She is an engaging speaker and gave the students insight into the life of a writer.

Betty Birney Birney highly recommended keeping a writing notebook to record ideas and encouraged students to write daily! She also emphasized the importance of thinking about life through the eyes of your character and doing research as part of the writing process.

This wonderful opportunity was brought to Bird Rock through a partnership with Warwick’s Book Store in La Jolla. Next month, Stuart Gibbs, author of the Spy Camp books will be visiting. Bird Rock students love learning directly from published authors!
