Sunset Elementary hosts Author Jim Whiting on Read Across America Day
24 March, 2017
On Read Across America Day (also Dr. Seuss’ Birthday!) Sunset Elementary hosted author Jim Whiting. Whiting is the author of over 180 nonfiction books for children and editor of NW Runner monthly. Students attended presentations and heard about the importance of exercise, including how running and exercise clear Whiting’s head for writing.
Whiting has over sixty books in production that he hopes to have published, and his goal is to write 365 books so that readers can read a different book of his every day of the year. He rewrites most of his work at least four times, and discussed with students the power and importance of editing and rewriting. A huge thank you goes out to the Sunset PTA for sponsoring this event!
