Author Shelley Pearsall will visit Monroe Elementary on Thursday, May 1.

The fifth grade students have read her book Trouble Don't Last. The book tells the story of eleven-year-old Samuel's journey on the Underground Railroad, and ties in with the fifth grade study of the Underground Railroad .

Shelley Pearsall will begin the day in the auditorium with a 45 minute discussion and question and answer session about Trouble Don't Last.   She will then work with students in 4 sessions to introduce the concept of historical fiction writing. She will discuss how primary source documents were used to write a chapter in the book. Students will then create a brief character sketch of their own.   Monroe Elementary School received a Learning Links grant from the Cincinnati Foundation to pay for the author visit.
