CLiF would like to introduce or re-introduce you to Terry Farish of Kittery, ME/Portsmouth, NH. Terry writes children and young adult books. She writes about the New American experience, and, as she wrote, “to understand us in our small world.”

Watch a clip of Terry’s presentation from CLiF’s Virtual Author’s Series here.

Things to think about:

  • Terry writes for, The New Hampshire Center for Public Interest Journalism. How is this writing different from writing your books?
  • How do you get started creating a character?
  • In what ways did your own travel inspire your work?
  • What interests you about folktales?

Here are a few ways to get to know Terry’s work better:

CLiF has created literacy activities for students of all ages here. Here are some that would go nicely with Terry’s work:

For older kids:

For families:
