Local Writer Visits BQJ Book Fair

Local writer, Taylor Lane Hailey visited Brooks-Quinn-Jones Elementary students in grades 3-5 during the Book Fair.

Taylor Lane Hailey is in the process of getting his book “Absalon” published. He was invited to speak with the students to encourage the importance of reading. He related to the students who did not have an interest in reading because when he was a young student he had felt the same way.

He asked students various question to start a discussion that got them curious about literature, such as:

  • What do you like to read?
  • What do you like to write about?
  • How can you make a story out of these topics?
  • What are your thoughts when you see an author's name on the book?
  • Is it possible for someone from a small town to become famous?

The students were very excited to have such a fun conversation with a local writer.
