Author Mullaly Hunt

Twice Nutmeg nominated author Lynda Mullaly Hunt visited MSP on May 30. She provided motivating and enthusiastic presentations to all of MSP's students. She spoke of the importance of GRIT, perseverance and self-determination. 

Her books, One for the Murphys and Fish in a Tree feature characters who must deal with significant problems and overcome them. As a person who struggled with reading as a student and who overcame a very difficult childhood, her story is especially inspirational. 

During her presentation, she encouraged students to pursue their dreams and not allow naysayers to dissuade them. It was significant that within hours of her presentations, the library received invitations from 3 students to read student created stories.
