Wonder Talk

RJ Palacio

Recently St George’s were treated to a visit from R.J Palacio, the author of 'Wonder'. With our friends from Merchiston Castle and Roseburn Primary present, this was truly an important day. R.J gave a talk on 'Wonder', and her new book 'White Bird', the moving story of Julian’s grandmother, a Jewish girl growing up in Nazi times. It shows how she was saved from the Nazis by a boy named Julian. She also spoke about her inspirations behind 'Wonder', a young girl outside an ice cream shop who looked a bit like Auggie. It was an inspirational talk, which we all enjoyed.
