How often do you get to ask the author of the book you are studying in class questions about the book he wrote? Today, students in AP English welcomed Mr. Richard Wright to their class. Mr. Richard Wright (former Head of English at Ridley, Order of Canada, Governor General Medalist and Giller Prize Winner) was discussing his latest novel, Mr Shakespeare’s Bastard, with the AP English sections who have been studying the book this term. Mr. Wright did a reading from the book and answered questions from the students.
