Canadian Author Eric Walters to Visit Sudbury Catholic Schools

October 7, 2008 - Canadian Author, Eric Walters will visit St. Francis Catholic School on Wednesday, October 8, 2008 to speak to students and staff about his books as well as the writing process in general. Eric Walters is a former intermediate division elementary teacher who began writing books in order to encourage his students to read.

The Grade 7 and 8 students at St. Francis Catholic School enjoy reading Mr. Walters' novels in class as they find them quite relevant and they encourage a love of reading in all students.

In addition, Mr. Walters will be making a stop at Marymount Academy (165 D’Youville Street) on the same day from 12:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m to present to the Grade 7 and 8 girls. The presentations will take place in the gym. In similar fashion to the St. Francis students, the Marymount students have been studying his novels for the past month to prepare for this presentation.
