SACO—On Monday, Dec. 13, thanks to a donation from Prime Motor Group President Ira Rosenberg, award-winning fantasy author Julie Hahnke will spend the day working with students at Thornton Academy.

Hahnke will teach writing workshops to sixth-grade classes at Thornton Academy Middle School (TAMS) in the morning. Afterward, a luncheon will be held and students can share special projects they’ve developed based on Hahnke’s story, and finally the author will talk to TA middle and high school students in the auditorium.  The sixth grade classes at TAMS have just finished reading Hahnke’s latest book, The Grey Ghost, a blend of fantasy and historic fiction set in medieval Scotland.
