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 Terry’s presentation from February 10, 2021.

Things to think about:

  • Terry writes for InDepthNH.org, 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 younger kids:

For older kids:

For families:

  • Extra Extra – put together some current event articles about places from which book characters come
  • Kindness Month – build kindness by learning about experiences of people living in other places
