Jenny Land, a teacher at St. Johnsbury Academy, has just published her first book The Spare Room. Like Natalie, she is an enthusiastic promoter of learning about history and building stories from it. Both authors have the particular gift of pulling students' imagination into exploring the past.
Jenny and Natalie covered a lot of ground at their Saturday morning talk at Bear Pond Books. We went from dinosaur bone wars to a bear as babysitter to a sheep who refuses to step in the mud. It's too much for a single post, so we've broken it into three:
- Historical Objects that Inspire Writing (Jenny Land)
- Discovering Forgotten Stories (Natalie Kinsey-Warnock)
- Additional Resources
