Author Ann Bausum Visits Seneca

The Seneca School District was pleased to host author Ann Bausum on the afternoon of November 15thAnn, who has written over ten nonfiction books geared for children, teens, and adults, presented to third through eighth grades about her book entitled: Sergeant Stubby: How a Stray Dog and His Best Friend Helped Win World War I and Stole the Heart of a Nation.  Ann also discussed her background, what inspired her to become a writer, and how students could foster the writing process themselves. As Ann explained, “My books for young people help upper elementary, middle school, and high school students discover the drama and significance of stories from history that may barely be presented in their textbooks. My goal is to make history relevant, engaging, alive, and irresistible.”  Ann’s visit to Seneca Schools was coordinated through the Gays Mills Public Library and was enjoyed by all who attended.  If you would like more information on Ann Bausum or her books, you may visit her website at
