The Chicago-area library tour continues
I visited a great group at Naperville Public Library – Nichols Branch yesterday. We read part of my short story “Face Man” and talked about my latest series The Delphi Trilogy.
Each of the kids told us what they’re were reading and we examined each story for the 4 main parts of a story:
It was a lively discussion and we found the central conflict of stories ranging from “Kill or be killed” (Hunger Games) to “I’d rather die than live without you” (Romeo and Juliet) to “Death doesn’t exist” (Rick Riordan’s Heroes of Olympus).
It was a great primer on story for young writers to take and explore their own experiences and story ideas.
Tonight I’ll be at Forest Park Public Library. Will they have a sign for me?!
Chris Everheart is author of the YA thriller described as “unputdownable” and “will draw in even the most reluctant readers”:
A lone teen. A suspicious death. An ancient conspiracy.
