Bala Cynwyd welcomes author Catherine Gilbert Murdock

Bala Cynwyd Middle School recently welcomed author Catherine Gilbert Murdock who spoke with students in a series of presentations and workshops about her path to becoming a writer, the creative process and more during a fun-filled and educational day.

Murdock's presentation to students included a speech and slideshow on medieval history in relation to her most recent publication, The Book of Boy, which tells the story of a young, hunchbacked boy in the year 1350. The boy is content with his quiet country life until a shadowy pilgrim with a dangerous past arrives on the farm and turns his world upside down.

The Knights then had time for a question and answer session with Murdock, which was followed by a Writer's Workshop where students had the unique opportunity for an in-depth exploration of creativity and the writing process.
