Visiting Trinity High School

I had the good fortune to visit Mrs. Julia Buckley's advance composition class at Trinity High School in River Forest, IL earlier this month. During a writing workshop, the students wrote poems and I walked them through a critique group. The poems we heard were awesome! I felt so inspired by the work of these young adult writers.

At lunch, the librarians, Mrs. Molly Klowden and Mrs. Sue Tindall hosted a Q & A session in the lovely Trinity library. Students attended who had read my book, Shattered, and we had an interesting discussion. Their questions were intriguing and reflective and made me think a lot about the choices I made in writing the novel.
