On March 30, I had the privilege of being part of the “Beyond the Book” program at the Guntersville, Alabama Public Library. The program invites the public to engage with an author and delve more deeply into a book, in my case, The Last Year of the Season. I was joined at the event by Guntersville’s school superintendent, Brett Stanton. It was great to discuss education with Brett and the entire audience. We covered charter schools, which were just approved by the Alabama legislature, contracts with private companies, finance, and a half dozen other things so it seems. It was a delight to meet Brett and to hold such a candid and entertaining discussion for the benefit of the audience.
