A friend of mine works closely with the Read Up Greenville book event and he was kind enough to connect me with SC author, Corrie Wang. I ordered copies of her debut, The Takedown, for my book club members and arranged for her to visit us.
She was gracious enough to spend most of the day with us. First, she had lunch with our book club and chatted, then she talked with our Creative Writing classes, and at the end of the day, we had an assembly in the auditorium open to all classes. This was the first author visit in our school for many, many years. We were so excited to have her and the students loved her laid back personality. We are looking forward to reading her next novel.
