The HP LitFest is returning to HPMS again this year! The literary events will begin on Thursday, February 20 with a keynote address by two-time Newbery Medal award-winning author LOIS LOWRY! Ms. Lowry will speak to all of our 8th-grade Raiders that afternoon. She won the Newbery for The Giver, which all of the students read last year, and the beloved Number the Stars.
On Friday, February 21 writing workshops will take place in all 8th grade English classes. During these workshops, a wide variety of authors who write fiction, narrative nonfiction, and journalism will share about their writing craft with the students.
Thanks to PC TAG for the generous grant that made all of this possible.
