Lois Szymanski, author of “The True Story of Sea Feather,” and other books, came to Beech Bottom Primary School on June 4 to discuss writing and encourage students to become writers. The children had the opportunity to brush and pet local Chincoteague ponies brought by Amy VanHorn of Bethany and her daughter, Eden. Eden obtained a Chincoteague pony with the help of the Feather Fund program established by Szymanski.
