On Thursday, October 17, 2013, Nigerian born and London based author Ifeoma Onyefulu visited Saint Louis Catholic Academy, a Pre K-8 grade school located near the Julia Davis Branch of the Saint Louis Public Library. Students were excited and energetically greeted Ms. Onyefulu as she came to share some of her work and talk about her writing process. She read aloud stories from her book The Girl Who Married a Ghost, as well as taught the students a game she played as a child. She shared with the older students details of her brainstorming and pre-writing process, showing students an actual notepad where she jots down ideas. The students were highly engaged, participated in the read aloud, and asked intriguing questions.
Be on the lookout for more author visits at SLPL branches and St. Louis schools!
