After reading the beginning of Dog Tags, written by Alexander London, the students had the unique opportunity to meet the author. Alexander spoke with the students about the writing process and about how he gets his creative ideas. He also shared that he was not an avid reader as a student but embraces writing for adolescents to encourage all students to find something to enjoy. It was a very special meeting and discussion. Feel free to ask your students about what they took away from the experience. Also, feel free to enjoy some of his books and purchase some for your students.
