“Giddings Intermediate School invited author, Lydia Hill to come to our school and give two presentations for 30 min. each to talk about her book, “Finding Home:  An Orphan’s Journey”, and about the writing process and being an author.  There were approximately 130 fourth and fifth grade students in each assembly, and she did a wonderful job engaging the students the entire time.  They were very interested in what she had to say.   Lydia was very professional, organized and never got off track.  She managed to keep their attention throughout the assembly and did a great job presenting her book.”

“Lydia Hill can help inspire young authors to follow their dreams. She shares her story of assembling thoughts for adventures in an understanding, easy to follow presentation. Her pleasant demeanor and Christian conscience makes her a delight to invite for any age student to be filled with incentive to write.”
