Award-winning author, Anne Wilsdorf, visits 5th and 6th grade students

On December 14th, the author of « Ingénieuse Eugénie » (Engineer Eugénie) and winner of the 2016 francophone Saint-Exupéry Prize, Anne Wilsdorf, presented her book to the grade 5 and 6 students on Champittet’s Pully campus.

The French Saint Exupéry Prize is awarded to author who lives in a francophone country other than France. A jury of students chooses one of the eight books proposed by the Saint Exupéry Prize committee. During the summer of 2016, three of the eight students who read the nominated books on the Swiss jury were from Champittet.

The winning book called “Ingénieuse Eugénie” tells the story of an ambitious young girl, Eugénie, who lives on a lonely island and dreams of discovering the world. So, the entrepreneurial Eugénie mobilises a collective effort and builds a bridge.  Through this story the author, Anne Wilsdorf, hopes to encourage girls to pursue scientific careers. Additionally, she is not only a long-time author, but also draws the illustrations in her children’s books. Before writing the book “Ingénieuse Eugénie”, the well-travelled author gathered information about architecture, met with a civil engineer and sought advice from a group of female Swiss engineers and architects.

During Anne Wilsdorf’s presentation, the students enjoyed asking her questions about her book and travels, as well as making their own drawings, while Anne Wilsdorf drew a picture for the school.
