Ms. Compestine is the author is 19 books. She is coming to Tianjin to promote her latest book, Secrets of the Terra-Cotta Warrior, which she co-wrote with her son, Vinson. He also features in Ms. Compestine’s Crouching Tiger, which is a Panda Book for Older Readers selection this year.

In addition to her writing, Ms. Compestine is also a noted expert on Asian cuisine. She has hosted her own television cooking show and often features in important US culinary magazines.

The IST library owns many of Ms. Compestine’s books, and Mrs. Fitzgerald will be using those books this week to help students prepare for the visit. Be sure to attend this Friday’s elementary assembly to hear her perform one of Ms. Compestine’s books.

We will be selling a selection of the most recently published books in the library from Wednesday. These are all high quality hardbacks and so the price is relatively high. Books start at 125rmb but are most definitely worth the price. Ms. Compestine will sign books after her presentations.

Hope to see many of you at IST on Monday!


It’s Speaking Time at IST

This is an event introduced in the past as a fun way to help students develop their oral language and presenting skills.  This week, students will be learning to read or recite a poem in their classrooms.  Those who wish to compete in the school wide competition are encouraged to also learn and practice their poem at home and will be judged in a more formal setting at each grade level.  A permission form will be sent home today asking parents to give permission for their child to enter the competition stage.

The finals will held in the theater on Monday, 28 April.
