Laurie Myers and Betsy Duffey

Our author visit on 1/23/2017 was a big success! We were excited to welcome Laurie Myers back to our school and to meet her sister, Betsy Duffey. They gave the students some great writing tips and they walked the students through the process of writing a book and getting it published. 

Laurie Myers and Betsy Duffey wrote My Dog, My Hero with their mother, Newbery Award-winning author Betsy Byars, along with a number of other books for elementary school students. My Dog, My Hero won the South Carolina Children's Book Award in 2004 and has been the most popular book in the BES Library for more than 10 years!
