A second generation Cuban American, the acclaimed author of fantasy and science fiction novels for middle school kids discussed his work and writing process with Norwich students during two classroom visits and later while reading from his work in Kreitzberg Library. Alexander shares the idea that at the most basic neurological and human level, everything we learn is story shaped. Norwich Assistant Professor of English and author Sean Prentiss talks about the Norwich Writers Series and the power of bringing authors to campus so that Norwich students see first hand that literature is alive, that writers are real people, and that any Norwich student can become a writer. Norwich students Erick Urquieta, Brianna Hale, and Amber Reichart and Assistant Professor of Spanish Gina Sherriff reflect on Alexander's classroom visits and what they gained from the experience.
