~ Charlotte Peasley Book Launch "The Things I Write ~
8th grader, Charlotte Peasley of Charlotte Elementary School at her first book launch
Charlotte Peasley, an 8th grader at Charlotte Elementary, released her first book, "The Things I Write," a collection of short stories and poetry, at a book launch held at the library on May 18, 2022.
Charlotte began the book-writing process through her Personal Learning Project (PLP). PLPs are completed each year by all students in the upper classroom at Charlotte Elementary School. During this year-long process, students identify interests and explore careers that might allow them to explore those interests. As part of the project, students connect with adult mentors who are experts in the field the student is exploring. Through the PLP mentorship program, the student and the adult work together to set goals and complete activities that help the student better understand the field about which they are learning.
There was standing room only at the event where Charlotte read selections from her book and happily signed copies. Her book is available through www.amazon.com.
