Barnes, who writes YA mysteries in various genres, talked with a half dozen or so classes during each of blocks two, three and four, and answered questions from students.  Barnes spoke of her writing career, from the early days of writing five “pretty bad” novels in high school to becoming a published author at 19. She also told the students and teachers about the inspiration for and the process of writing “The Lovely and the Lost.”

Trinity librarian Mrs. Betsy deGolian coordinated the Zoom visit.
