Marijane Meaker, internationally acclaimed author of sixty books and longtime resident of Springs, visited with Tom House's high school English classes on Friday, October 13 to discuss her beloved young adult novel Gentlehands, a mystery and adolescent romance set in the Hamptons in the 1970s. Ninth graders who had just completed the book learned first-hand about the author's inspiration, research and craft. Ms. Meaker, who at 90 is completing her 61st book, took questions for nearly an hour, talking in detail about her lifelong career as a writer, as well as giving advice on pursuing writing as a passion and a living.
