Ron Rash

Ask your 4th grader about the author who visited our class today! Ron Rash, a friend of Lisa Bryant's, came to speak with us, and it was a treasured time. He writes poetry, short stories and novels. I can't wait to read his work! Ron Rash shared about the writing process, how he gets ideas for his stories, how much time it takes him to write, and how much important work goes into the revision process. The 4th grade students were enthralled with his gentle spirit and magical words. He also shared with us that his novel Serena is being made into a movie starring Jennifer Lawrence.
