Elise Broach is an American writer who was born in Georgia and lived in the South until she was three. She was 12 when her family moved to Brighton, England, a place wonderfully rich in history and literature. She first read Shakespeare's plays when she was in school there. She fell in love with Shakespeare's language when she had to memorize, "Tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow".
She is known for her great novels and picture books. Some of her novels are, "Shakespeare's Secret", "Desert Crossing" and "Masterpiece" along with more. Some picture books she is famous for are, "What the No-Good Baby is Good For", "Hiding Hoover", "Wet Dog", and many more.
Elise is spending the day at Washington with 1st - 4th grade students talking about the importance of writing and revising. She is also sharing some interesting facts about history and how she researched her information to write her amazing and entertaining books.
It has been an outstanding day. Thank you to our wonderful PTO for sponsoring Elise Broach and allowing her to send a day with our students.
