At Savannah airport and on to SCAD jewel of a theater and then to master class with 6-8th grade future novelists at the Godley Station public school, this class sharp as all get-out. @savbookfestival places writers in the schools, a highlight of a beautiful weekend meeting and reading new writers. Great to meet the ones and only Michael Tolkin and @joe_hill. @atticalocke filled the church with her novel’s Voice, Bluebird, Bluebird. Savannah has it going on. And scant 10 story buildings. The city’s skyline is a storyline worth reading.@national_writers_series_tc @scribnerbooks @ Savannah, Georgia ... See MoreSee Less

I had the honor of being in your audience yesterday in Savannah. My husband and I were very interested in hearing you speak about your book which was extremely moving. We had not known before hand you are the author of Horse Soldiers, which we also found amazing. Thank you for a wonderful event and for the work you do. The words you bring to life and encouragement you are bringing to these children is life changing.

Ten story buildings ruin the charm of beautiful towns! Keep up the fight, Doug!
