Peter Lourie

Peter takes students on adventures around the world to show them the passion that lies at the heart of travel and writing. In this lively multimedia adventure presentation, he will take children into the cloud forest of the Andes to look for Inca treasure, down Amazonian rivers, up Mayan and Aztec temple walls, into the Arctic world of polar bears and bowhead whales, down historic American rivers and waterways, and deep into the history and foreign cultures studied in elementary and middle school. His Adventure Assembly helps children understand the process of a writer – researching topics, collecting journals, and perfecting the writer’s craft through revision. Optional follow-up writing workshops help teachers and students bring adventure to the page as they perfect their writing skills.
