PS 114 Hosts Famous Author Day


Acclaimed children’s author Johanna Hurwitz (center), along with Belle Harbor School Principal, I.A., Stephen P. Grill and School Librarian Jeanne Manas, at the conclusion of “Famous Author Day” at PS 114.  Author Hurwitz shared an author’s secret with young scribes:  Many of the characters in her stories are modeled directly after members of the author’s immediate family, especially her daughter.  Principal Grill and Librarian Manas applauded when Author Hurwitz reminded the students “...The best place and the best time to commence a lifetime of celebrated writing...is...right here, right now...in your formative school years.”
