As part of a special event for 10 YRDSB schools, Kathy Kacer will be visiting Teston Village Public School on the morning of September 30 to talk to grade 6, 7 and 8 students about her newest book Stones on a Grave. This book is part of the new Secrets series from Canadian authors Kelley Armstrong, Vicki Grant, Marthe Jocelyn, Nora McClintock, Teresa Toten, and Eric Walters. Five of these authors will be visiting two YRDSB schools each on the 30th and in the evening Aurora Grove Public School will host a free event beginning at 7:00 pm, where students from the 10 schools can come and meet all five authors (Kacer, Armstrong, Grant, Walters and Toten). This would be an amazing opportunity for some of the avid readers who have been coming to visit me in the Learning Commons. In addition to her recent book she will talk about the process of collaborating with six other authors, the Second World War, and the Holocaust.
There are audio samples of one chapter from each of the books on the series website. The book “Stones on a Grave” itself will not be released until September 29th. You can also download sample chapters for iBooks in iTunes.
