Author Elise Broach came to the MES Library on Wednesday, June 10, 2009 to talk about her books and the process of writing.  She made three presentations throughout the day to different grade levels.  She gave lots of good advice on how to get ideas and how to develop them into books.  She also spoke about her editing process and how some books changed in big ways through the editing process.She also autographed books and had lunch with a small group of students.  This program was made possible by the generosity of Book Fair shoppers.  To learn more about her and her books, go to www.EliseBroach.com
