March 3 Author Event with Tiffany Schmidt!

On March 3, young adult author Tiffany Schmidt stopped by Ridley High School for a presentation in the Board Room. Tiffany is the author of Send Me a Sign, Bright Before SunriseHold Me Like a Breath, and the upcoming Break Me Like a Promise. Students from Creative Writing, Art, and the Emerald Academy Book Club gathered to hear Tiffany speak about her transition from middle school teacher to full-time writer, how her students have inspired her, and her writing routine. She told students, “There is value in the things you value and enjoy, whether it’s writing, music, or science. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise!” She also talked about how she fills her “creative well” by going outside and getting moving whenever she gets stuck in her writing. Hiking, swimming, fresh air, and sunshine always inspire her! Tiffany’s genuine nature and sweet personality engaged our students, and she was very impressed with their thoughtful questions. Special thanks to Children’s Book World in Haverford for making this event possible!
