They read from their novels, "Ink Is Thicker Than Water" and "Kissing Ted Callahan (And Other Guys)" and "Populazzi," respectively, and answered questions from Mr. Brewer's and Mr. Nagaoka's classes for periods 5 and 7.
In addition to face-to-face questions, we had a Twitterfall where students could ask questions and make comments using the authors' Twitter handles: @TheAmes and @EliseLAllen or the hashtag "AmyandElise," that everyone could see projected onto a screen.
Many thanks to both for spending so much time with us. It was a truly a privilege.
