The Last Block in Harlem comes to Hawkesdale!

We are excited to welcome Christopher Herz to our school on Friday. Christopher is author of the newly published “Last Block in Harlem” which captures his love of the Block . From the age of 8, Christopher knew that he wanted to write and become an author.

The publishing of his book by Amazon Encore is an amazing story in itself – From Street Selling to Publisher to a Publishing Deal. The intriguing part of this presentation, is that Christopher is in New York and he will skype or videoconference into our school on Friday morning 11:30am our time, which will be late Thursday night his time.  He was kind enough to respond to a tweet seeking an author or writer for our celebrations during Australian  Bookweek – the theme of which is One World – Many Stories and Literacy/Numeracy Week 29th Aug to 4th Sept. He is passionate about inspiring young writers and encouraging them to read and write. Christopher kindly responded to a tweet seeking an author to speak to our students.

Many of our students will be attending the Melbourne Writers Festival the day before. These students will be given the opportunity to hear Christopher talk.

Thanks Christopher for sharing your precious time with us and we look forward to working with you.
