In May 2007, the faculty book club that the author facilitates read Chris Bohjalian's novel "The Double Bind" (Shaye Areheart: Harmony, 2007). Bohjalian, a local author, agreed to meet them in Burlington for drinks and conversation. When he arrived, the author and her class introduced themselves, passed around some nachos, and began their discussion. They shared their reading experiences, and Bohjalian answered questions about everything from the novel's real-life backstory to his writing process. He shared some tidbits about his upcoming book, which at the time was Skeletons at the Feast, before signing their books and heading off to another commitment. In this article, the author shares several tips for arranging classroom author visits.
