• Jason Reynolds, author of Ghost, All American Boys and more, visited South Atlanta High School on Thursday, October 10, 2019.  Twenty-seven Golden Bears were invited to attend Mr. Reynolds’ author visit sponsored by Page Turners Make Great Learners.  During the event, Mr. Reynolds spoke about his writing process, his life, how his life affects what he writes, and why he writes for young people.  At the end, he took questions from the student audience and gave every child in the audience a copy of his new book, Look Both Ways.   On the bus ride home, students discussed what they saw and heard and how much they enjoyed the event.  Seventh grader, D. Barber stated, “He told the story from a child’s perspective – an adult knows what I’m going through.”  C. Griffith said, “He writes to influence the youth of today to not make mistakes that he and others made.”
