Teffanie Thompson, author of the novel Dirt, visited the Jose Cisneros Cielo Vista Branch Library on March 24, 2016 during our regular Teen Hangout program. During this time, Ms. Thompson spoke about her book, about reading, and about her writing process. A reception followed her presentation.
Ms. Thompson spoke about the process of writing Dirt and took questions from teens in the audience. She also did a reading from her first chapter of the book, which is about a boy who goes to a family reunion and is miraculously transported into his family’s past.
