We are doing a conversation with Walter Dean Myers, the author of the book,
Fallen Angels at the end of April. He will be engaged with us in a live
chat experience in May.
If you are interested, please visit our website at http://www.mcet.edu or
contact me and I will forward information to you.

I always think that a frank discussion with students prior to reading the
novel is important.

I have several students who like the author and I do a unit on war
