“We enjoyed Nowhere Boy as an entire school over the summer, and Katherine Marsh spoke in the fall.  Her presentation about the book and her writing process was highly engaging.  She gets middle schoolers, and I can’t recommend her books and programming enough!”  –Bill Antonitis, ELA Department Supervisor, Henry James Memorial Middle School
