INSPIRING STUDENT TO WRITE -- David Stahler Jr., the author of the "Truesight Trilogy," was a guest at Gilman Middle School on Jan. 7. Stahler visited the school as part of the Children's Literacy Foundation Grant. All the students in grades 5-8 were in attendance. They enjoyed asking questions about writing, publication, various characters and plots. Most of all, they wanted to hear about the books written and how Stahler had been inspired to develop the plots he has used. Students were fascinated by characters that were "other-worldly," ghosts and futuristic in nature. They also had the chance to listen to three chapters from Stahler's latest book which will be released in late January. As an English teacher at Lyndon Institute, Stahler inspired many students to have him as a teacher in the future, and he was very encouraging of their struggles with writing, as well as the skills in learning to take constructive criticism.
