AWARD WINNING AUTHOR VISITS… Award winning nature photographer and author Kathy Miller visited The Wardlaw-Hartridge School on May 10 to share her new book, “Chippy Chipmunk Parties in the Garden.” Miller provided tips about the process of writing a book, which does not always need to begin with words. A book may begin with photographs or illustrations and then the story often naturally flows from the images. The students also enjoyed creating a chipmunk burrow in an interactive activity that followed the presentation. The Wardlaw-Hartridge Parents’ Association sponsored this event.
