Young Authors

Hillel students self-publish books and
take part in JCC Book Fair.

Presented thanks to a generous grant from the
Community Foundation for Southeast Michigan




he Detroit Jewish
Community Center's 60th
Annual Jewish Book Fair
will once again highlight young
Jewish authors during its "Kids Can
Be Authors, Too" program. Book Fair
runs from Nov. 2-13 at the JCCs in
West Bloomfield and Oak Park. The
young authors program is at 1 p.m.
Sunday, Nov. 6, in Oak Park.
Last spring, the call for authors
went out, and third- and fourth-
grade students in Accelerated
Language Arts classes at Hillel Day
School in Farmington Hills took on
the challenge to write and submit
their work.
"It is helpful when students have
authentic experiences for writ-
ing, and this contest enabled the
students to write with a real audi-
ence in mind:' said Joan Freedman,
director of the school library and an
Accelerated Language Arts teacher.
While the fourth-graders held a
peer conference to develop story
ideas, the third-graders read books
by Doreen Cronin (Diary of a Worm,
Diary of a Spider and Diary of a Fly).
Each of these children then chose
their own insect to research. The pro-
cess also included descriptive writ-
ing, journaling and model building.
"It was a remarkable experience
to observe the students as they each
took an individual journey through
the writing process:' said Pam Smith,
fourth-grade Accelerated Language
Arts teacher and Hillel learning spe-
cialist. "In the end, it was an amaz-
ing sight to watch the expression on
each child's face when they received
the books they had published."
Of all the submissions sent in from
Hillel, eight authors were selected
to participate. These young authors
self-published their stories and
will present their work at the event.
Copies of each winning entry will be
available for purchase at Book Fair.
Hillel Day School students
participating are fourth-graders
Alex Aisner, Ethan Biederman,
Maya Gamer, Nia Kepes and Jacob
Schlussel; fifth-graders are Sara Seid
and Benji Rosenberg. Eighth-grader
Jordan Halpern submitted a book of
Student authors also came
from Akiva Hebrew Day School in
Southfield and area public schools. L I
