Last Thursday our Nook Book Club kids skyped with Candy Gourlay, the author of one of our all time favorite books: Tall Story. We had a great time and learned a lot too!

We learned about:

  • Gigantuism
  • Yau Ming
  • Writing from what you know
  • Philippine history
  • Candy’s family
  • How to pronounce Tagalog!
  • How ideas for writing are born

We especially learned that talking with someone that rocked your world is way cool and pretty easy to do too!  Candy was great with our students; it’s easy to tell that she’s a born storyteller and someone who’s plain old fun to hang out with!

Thanks Candy for rocking our world!

Candy has an awesome website too. Check it out
