Canadian Best-Selling Author Peter D. Clark visited Blackville Elementary students today, February 22nd. He was very inspiring demonstrating to them that anyone can write stories just like he does. He shared stories that he wrote and television documentaries as well. The students we awed at seeing that anyone can follow their dreams and become the writers that they might wish to be. His story-telling nature was entertaining and inspiring. Thank you Mr. Clark!
