Author Dominic Carrillo – Guest Lecture
with Grades 8 to 11
Today, our school welcomed a truly inspirational and resourceful visitor – Californian author Dominic Carrillo. In a guest lecture’s time, he took students from Grades 8 to 11 on a creative writing journey amongst the pages of his young adult novels on intriguing coming-of-age themes. Children split in groups and analyzed several characters, expressing their opinion on their behaviours and development within the plot. The writer shared his story and encouraged students to read, write and perceive what they love with passion and belief. We are feeling motivated to read his newest book, ‘Nia and the Dealer’, a few copies of which were donated to the school. Such a wonderful visit, fostering creativity and love for books!
