Erica Perl at Capital City Public Charter School

In a partnership that included Humanities teachers, a librarian, and the school’s Arts Director, local author Erica Perl brought her newly released middle grade novel The Cabybara Conspiracy to two sixth grade groups at Capital City Public Charter School. Written as a play, complete with stage direction, student groups used an excerpt from the book to perform readers’ theatre after discussing Erica’s inspiration and writing process for the work. Erica and AOB are hoping the visit will lead to a full-blown performance of The Capybara Conspiracy in CCPCS’s new, state-of-the-art theatre, and students now have a wide selection of Erica’s books to enjoy while waiting in the wings!
