On October 28th, East McDowell Jr. High was treated to a visit by young adult literature author Alan Gratz.
Mr. Gratz delivered a lively talk to students about his passion for writing, his journey becoming a professional writer, the writing process, and the importance of dealing with rejection and growing from it.
This was originally broadcast live from UStream from a webcam so the quality of video is not great; however, the audio is sufficient to get his message.
Thanks go out to McDowell Arts Council Association, Inc. for their sponsorship of this visit.
Please take an opportunity to visit Alan's website to learn more about his passion for writing, his inspiration to youth, and his wonderful books.
