One of our wonderful ELA teachers, Ms. Lauer, started the conversation with Vroman's Bookstore about having Ms. Niven come to Lincoln.
Ms. Niven spoke to roughly 60 of Ms. Lauer's students, many of whom read and loved Ms. Niven's first young adult novel, "All The Bright Places," and were eager to ask questions from the author herself--a rare privilege.
We were able to offer both novels for purchase and the queue of students waiting to have their books autographed by Ms. Niven was like that of a rock star signing records, back in the day anyway.
Many thanks to Ms. Lauer, Vroman's, and most of all Ms. Niven for such an amazing experience.
