Renowned author visits

Published:  May 1, 2017

On Thursday, April 27, National Book Award finalist Ali Benjamin visited Maple Street School to talk with 4th-8th graders about her book, The Thing About Jellyfish. Her debut novel for adolescents follows the story of Suzy Swanson as she tries to make sense of her friend’s death. Benjamin shared her writing process and how she conceived of the idea to write The Thing About Jellyfish, and she encouraged students to find and tell the stories that they’d like to read.
