Author Patrick Jones Visits Mepham

Librarian turned author, Patrick Jones visited Mepham High School on Friday, April 13th. His visit coincided with the kickoff of National Library Week. Forty students from the National English Honor Society (NEHS) and Literary Circle (Mepham's Book Club) had the opportunity to read Jones' first novel, Things Change, which was named by the Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA) as a best book for reluctant readers, and then participated in a group discussion with the author. There was a question-and-answer period and students had copies of his book autographed.
