Visiting Author comes to ISD Reading Week



November 8, 2017--The ISD Librarians would like to thank Boori Monty Pryor for his wonderful readings and workshops on our campus this week. He’s visited classrooms with his giant “pencil” (the didgeridoo), entertained students and faculty alike, and offered writing inspiration as well as a conviction that student stories matter. Thank you, Boori, for the inspiration. Here are some clips of the work that you’ve offered to the school community:

  1. Opening ceremony

  2. Classroom visit

If you would like to read more of Monty’s works, find his poetry on this site.
