Writer’s Workshop

What a thrill to teach 4 classes at the Los Altos High School Writer’s Week. Around 38 authors were there throughout the week. In advance the classes were given chapter 13 of “The Middle Fork” to read. It is a climactic point in the book where the river finally gets the best of the kayakers. Emotions are strained and catastrophe is in the air. Not knowing the exact setting of the book was the wilds of Idaho, the studends knew it took place in the wilderness and guessed Colorado and the Yukon. In one class the students each told of a near death experience that they have encountered. I was surprised to hear of so many car accidents. To my great delight, many of the kids wanted to know what happened next in The Middle Fork, confirming many reader comments that the novel is a page turner.
