During the visit students asked Deborah a prepared question. Deborah graciously answered all of them. Many students commented afterwards that one of the funniest and most insightful parts of the visit was when Deborah shared a story from her childhood about one of her close friends. While the story had an unhappy ending it allowed students to see why Deborah writes about friendship struggles so often in her books.
Deborah was the last of nine Skype visits we hosted this year and it was a perfect way to conclude our way of inviting authors into Gwin Oaks Elementary.
