My Kids’ Reaction to Chris Crutcher

Filed under: Chris Crutcher/Author Study — katefrazer @ 10:51 am

So last Friday, I brought in my nice newly autographed Chris Crutcher books to class and shared them with all of my students.  Needless to say, they were very excited that I met him and that I brought back autographed novels for our class. 

They have been reading various short stories from a whole bunch that I brought in, and many of them chose to read stories from Athletic Shorts, and they are loving them.  Now that I brought more of his work and some information about what meeting him was like, they are even more into his writing.  One of my more reluctant students informed his class how he loved Chris Crutcher and went to Barnes and Noble to get one of his books the night before. 

 It was really nice to see them excited about this, especially since I was too.
