We have been fortunate to welcome many authors to New City School over the years, but today we were excited to be paid a visit by our first graphic novelist! Judd Winick, creator of the very popular Hilo series, joined us for our assembly this week.
He talked with 1st through 6th Graders about his creative process, getting to know his characters, and the benefit of creating a second draft (even when it doesn't seem like fun!) because they are vital to getting your best ideas out. Students also had the opportunity to ask questions about Winick's books, inspiration, favorite characters, and much more.
Thank you for joining us, Judd!
