On Thursday, November 1, third-grade students at Love Creek Elementary took part in a presentation about writing given by local author Dr. Ilona Holland. Dr. Holland currently has two published books, Buddy Bison which was published in 2016 and her most recent piece, The Lost Locket of Lewes which was released on September 1 of this year. Prior to becoming a published author, Holland was a Harvard professor for 14 years in their graduate school for education. Now in her retirement, she resides in Lewes. Students were given the opportunity to talk with Holland about her writing process and what it takes to write a book in the historical fiction genre. After the one hour presentation, Dr. Holland visited each of the third-grade rooms and signed books for the students.
