Why Knowing Your Setting is Important by Phyl Manning, author of two volumes of Here, There, and Otherwhere. The first volume follows Phyl’s travels through the West Pacific, where you will try to reason with a conger eel or hold afloat a world-class sealife photographer who cannot swim. The second volume starts out in the Midwestern Plains of her origin and then pretty much stays there and in California, where you can be older, more experienced in theory but still nonplussed to be declared “dead” officially.

Interview with Leila Denise Springer, author of the not-yet-published YA novel, BUZZKILL I had the opportunity to read Springer’s work in progress to my fifth graders, and they love it.  Read their amazingly mature questions to the author, and her responses.
