Kiera Cass, author of the highly popular Selection series, visited ISM, courtesy of National Bookstore, to share some insights about her books and provide inspiration for Middle School readers and writers. Her reflections on her life, in Middle School and beyond, helped the audience make connections to her personally and to many of the characters in her novels. When she spoke about different characters, we learned that they achieved their distinct personalities by her continual reflection of their thoughts and actions; she stressed that she always tried to “stay true to her characters.”
Cass spoke about setbacks in her writing life, leaving us with a lesson that being resilient when struggling with hardship helps to achieve your goals. She wouldn’t share the name of her newest installment of the Selection, even when put under pressure by the audience, but ISM Middle Schoolers are eagerly awaiting the release!
