A Visit with Matt Holm!

Today was a very exciting one for the Grade 5 and 6 classes. We were fortunate enough to invite Matt Holm to St. George’s for a presentation on his new graphic novel Sunny Side Up! The timing could not be more perfect, because the Grade 6 students study Jennifer Holm’s — his sister and writing partner —  novel Turtle in Paradise this term, and it was wonderful to hear all about their family history and how that translates to a working relationship.

Matt is just a down-to-earth guy, and gave a fabulous presentation on his writing process: how to create characters, include fun details, and write with an authentic voice.
