Author Barbara McGrath visits Lyon School

Children's author Barbara McGrath visited the Mary Lyon K-8 School in Brighton today to talk to students in kindergarten through grade 4 about the creative writing and book publishing process. Barbara, a former pre-school teacher, has written more than 20 books for children, including the award-winning The M&M's Brand Counting Book and The Little Green Witch. Barbara will visit many Boston Public Schools this year -- including the P.A. Shaw, O'Hearn, Chittick, Ohernberger and Perry elementary schools -- as part of a new non-profit progam Authors Talk, Too, which brings published authors and illustrators into urban and other low-income schools for free, informative, and fun presentations designed to inspire students to become capable writers.
