Tenth Grade English Talks to Author

Kelly Fykes (lk)
Sophomores had the unique opportunity to communicate with world-renowned and award-winning author Chitra Divakaruni. Students in Kelly Fykes' and Nicole Padgett's tenth grade English Honors class read a collection of short stories by Chitra Divakaruni called The Unknown Errors of Our Lives. Students posed questions to the author about her inspiration for her stories and her personal connections to her works of literature via Flipgrid, which is an online video platform that allows users to record videos, share with others and then respond to others' videos. Chitra was gracious enough to respond to our questions. It was a wonderful opportunity to create a real connection with an author.
