Justin has visited high schools and universities across the country to talk about his novel, about writing, about Charles Dickens, and about the creative process.

Here are some of the things schools have been saying about his visits:

"Justin Kramon is a natural communicator. The students in my English seminar were drawn to him as a modest, funny, obviously brilliant practitioner of the craft of writing. As many of them aspire to be writers themselves, they looked to him for guidance and wisdom on a variety of subjects, and he did not disappoint. From imaginative writing prompts to a fascinating comparison of Justin's writing and his original music, Justin weaves a rich portrait of what goes into the art of literary fiction. Students are still raving about his visit. It was inspiring."

--Adam Gidwitz, St. Ann's School, Brooklyn, NY

"Justin was impressively generous.  In talking with students, he was as wry and witty as one might expect of the author of Finny.  Even his 'reading' went beyond simply reading from the novel: Justin offered commentary on writing strategies as exemplified in different scenes from Finny. Overall, students came away with a rich sense of the writing life."

-Elizabeth Bolton, Professor of English Literature, Swarthmore College, Swarthmore, PA

"Justin has a great rapport with young people and does a wonderful job sharing the writing process and his delightful characters with students and adults alike.  His humor and insight are a great addition to any classroom."

-Patty Worsham, AP English teacher, Lynchburg, VA
