Author Interview: Allan Wolf

I want to bring Allan Wolf to my school-his energy and enthusiasm are catching. Not only is he is a great writer who can discuss all the books he’s written for kids and teens, but he’s also an awesome performance poet who can lead writing workshops!


Allan-Wolf

After meeting Allan Wolf at NCTE this fall and getting his autograph for my students who loved his enthralling novel-in-verse Zane’s Trace, I picked an audiobook copy of his newest poetic novel The Watch That Ends the Night about the sinking of the Titanic.  I was astonished at all the information I learned while listening to the novel, and also how much I enjoyed his writing style with the 24(!) different characters he created in weaving his story.

Allan’s thoughts on the power of words gave me goosebumps, because his message is about how much lexicon can transform one’s emotions and one’s state of mind-WOW! I know words are power, but he extrapolated upon that statement in a way I never could. 

I hope you enjoy this author interview as much as I do, and can use it as an excellent vocabulary resource.
