Shane Peacock Award-Winning Author Visits Intermediate/Jr. High

Shane Peacock is an award-winning author of plays, biographies, juvenile and young adult fiction and non-fiction. On November 6, 2015, Mr. Peacock visited Homer Junior High and discussed the joy and excitement of reading and writing to an attentive audience. He explained how a writer crafts a story, among other secrets, and gave a dramatic reading from the first of his series The Boy Sherlock Holmes. The Canadian author also talked about some of the wild and offbeat things he has done and written about – ask your child about sumo wrestling or tightrope walking! Since Mr. Peacock’s presentation, the Junior High Library now has a waiting list for his books! This program was made possible through a grant from the Myrtle Dee Nash Memorial Fund of the Community Foundation of Tompkins County facilitated by Phillips Free Library.
