Catherine Austen has a "devil" of a time at Nova Scotia schools

June 26th, 2014 by Kendra Martin

Spring—a time when everyone, including writers, wants to be out and about, not stuck indoors. 

Just a brief peek at how some of our children's book authors are taking advantage of the season! 

Catherine Austen, author of 28 Tricks for a Fearless Grade 6 and 26 Tips for Surviving Grade 6, spent a few weeks this spring touring schools, libraries, and bookstores in Nova Scotia as part of the Canadian Children's Book Week 2014.

Catherine spoke to Grade 5 and 6 students at the Sacred Heart School of Halifax, and Grade 4-6 students at the Pictou Landing First Nation School. Reading from Chapter 11 of 28 Tricks , Catherine does a spectacularly spooky devil voice! "The students always crack up," she says.
