With books about a town full of monsters and another about a man who’s mistaken for a horse, there’s no denying author Troy Cummings has a wild imagination. Over a two-week span in November, Cummings shared his imagination and love of writing and illustrating with Gahanna-Jefferson elementary school students.
The Notebook of Doom
, Cummings visited every elementary school in the district. Three years ago, Cummings started visiting schools. Since then, his visits have evolved into interactive presentations, lunches with students and book signings.
During each school visit on his trip, Cummings read through his stories and encouraged Gahanna-Jefferson students to think creatively by leading them through an interactive brainstorming session of writing and doodling. He also took time to sign books during specially-arranged classroom lunches with the author.
