November 9, 2011 - St. Benedict Catholic Secondary School took time to Drop Everything And Read (DEAR) this week. The session served a dual purpose in that, as students were further developing their appreciation for literature, they were also preparing for a visit from internationally-published author Allan Stratton. Students read excerpts from his award-winning novels, and are excited to listen to him when he visits St. Ben’s in person. After reading, Grade 12 student Kyle Taylor said, “I found the point of view he used was interesting. I'm already thinking of the questions I want to ask him".
