“Jo Hackl’s presentation to my 7th grade English classes provided enriching, interesting, and important information about books, writing, and the writing process. She explained how she developed the concept of her book and how she researched, which was wonderful for my young writers to hear as they study historical fiction. Perhaps most beneficial was her advice about being curious, writing often, and ignoring spelling and grammar until one’s first draft is complete. How encouraging for my students to get a behind-the-scenes look at the journey of writing a book! I would highly recommend Jo Hackl as a guest speaker for any unit on writing.” —Allison O’Rear, Christ Church Episcopal School
