Author Mo O’Hara spoke about writing and acting with third and fourth grade students at Waldron Mercy Academy.
O’Hara told the students that simply by coming up with ideas, “they are all already authors,” and helped the group brainstorm different ideas about animals with superpowers.
“I love hearing the kids’ ideas. It cracks me up because they are the most creative and they don’t have censor buttons,” O’Hara said.
The students laughed as O’Hara acted out events from her childhood that inspired her book series My Big Fat Zombie Goldfish. O’Hara gave the students a few lessons about acting and had them dress up as characters from her most recent book, My Fangtastically Evil Vampire Pet.
O’Hara was born in Pennsylvania, but currently lives in London. She visited Waldron Mercy Academy as part of her U.S. book tour.
