YA Irene Lathan spoke to my class today through Skype

The author of the historical fiction novel Leaving Gee's Bend spent some time talking to my creative writing classes about the craft.  Irene allowed my students to participate in an open Q&A with her.   I included some excerpts from the experience.

Here Irene discusses the concept called "raising the stakes"...
