      • The Writer’s Block has invited former EHS graduate (2011 or around there) and newly published author, Eleanor Glewwe, to come speak to our students about writing tomorrow during collaborative time.  She was at The Red Balloon in Saint Paul this past weekend.  We are her last stop before her flight out tomorrow afternoon.  The event will begin at 11 a.m. in the choir room.  Feel free to follow this link to learn more about her book Sparkershttp://www.amazon.com/Sparkers-Eleanor-Glewwe/dp/0451468767.  The book itself targets a younger audience than our students; however, she will talk about her writing process, how she got published, etc.  Aspiring creative writers should definitely attend!
