A visit with Barry Wolverton

The 4th and 5th graders had a wonderful Skype visit this morning with author Barry Wolverton.  Many of our students have read and loved his novel Neversink and we were VERY excited to meet him!  We learned, amongst other things, that the inspiration for the book came in part from marshmallows (yes, it's true) and also that writing a book can take a very long time (six years!).  Mr. Wolverton was kind enough to answer all our questions and also to read the first chapter from Neversink.  We are so grateful for the time he spent with us!
