Author visits German School

On May 2, 2014, the young local author, Cristin Terrill, briefly visited the Library of the Upper School in order donate her recently (2014; Hyperion) published book, titled "All Our Yesterdays", as well as two copies of the German edition of the same, published (also in 2014; Bastei Lübbe) under the title "Zeitsplitter". Ms. Cristin Terrill has already earned a reputation as a very promising writer of books for an adolescent audience. Hopefully, Ms. Terrill will become a regular guest at the DSW!
