West Seattle High School students’ reading assignment brings author Stephanie Guerra to campus

Reading assignments are routine at school – but students don’t often get to meet the author in person. That’s what happened this morning in Paula Tortorice‘s Language Arts class at West Seattle High School, as West Seattle author Stephanie Guerra visited. Her recently released book “Billy the Kid Is Not Crazy” – set in West Seattle – was used for a class reading assignment, and she was invited to come talk with the students. They asked questions including what it takes to create characters and plot, and presented her with posters they had drawn, depicting a scene in the book. Guerra also made a hometown appearance back in October as leadoff author in the Words, Writers, West Seattle series.
