Bending The Rules
April 27, 2018

As day two of Writer's Week concludes students meet an author.

Author Julie Halpern joins Antioch Community High School on the second day of Writer’s Week: Traditional storytellers.

Native to the Chicago suburbs, Julie was a librarian before she became a stay-at-home mom and an author. She has two children and a husband who is also an author as well as an illustrator.

She has been writing since she was a very young and has used it to document important events in her life, such as her battle with depression as a teen. Some of the novels she has written include Meant to Be, The F-It List, Have a Nice Day, and Get Well Soon.

Julie continues to work other jobs other than being an author because she never knows how well a book will sell, but she continues to write and hopes to one day make it a full time job just like her husband.

Her presentation was interesting and is certainly something Antioch students will remember in the future.
