On December 2, Ridley High School had its very first author Skype session with none other than Jonathan Maberry! Mr. Maberry is the author of student favorites Rot & Ruin and Dust & Decay. He was kind enough to Skype with us from his home office in Warrington, PA. He spent about an hour speaking with our students and answering their questions about his writing process, “why zombies,” and what he’ll be working on next. About 80 excited students got to participate in this “virtual” author visit! Their questions for Mr. Maberry were thought-provoking and really showed how much they love his books!
We were especially excited to learn that there will be two more books in the series. Look for Flesh & Bone in 2012 and Fire & Ash in 2013! Hopefully this was only the first of many author Skype sessions to come!
