October is international library month and so was the perfect time for us to invite a special guest author, Bryn Barnard, to visit our school. Bryn is an American author and illustrator, as well as an artist and educator. He is best known for his books such as; ‘Dangerous Planet’, ‘Outbreak’, and ‘The New Ocean’.
During his visit to YK Pao Middle School and High School, he guided students through the process of creating books and how books can evolve from manuscript to print. Bryn’s main goal was to give students a deeper understanding and appreciation of how writing and illustrations work together, and to help the students understand the importance of the editing process.
