Quizzed on Cursed
Updated: Feb 26, 2022
Wednesday I hung out with the grade 5s of Falconridge School. They quizzed me on Cursed. I’d claimed almost everything in it was drawn from real life, even though it’s a fantasy story. I almost managed to convince them.
I brought some props too. The kids were awed by the Spirit Man (and a little creeped out), and absolutely thrilled to meet Old Moby, Jane’s puppet. While I was signing bookmarks I listened in as one of the teachers read a scene from Cursed. I hadn’t realized I’ve never heard anyone else read my stories. I’d forgotten the scene, and had a good laugh listening in.
