Post: Author introduction
Posted by Mark Wakely on 1/18/08
I am the author of the young adult novel An Audience for
Einstein. One of my editors told me that someone mentioned
my book on Teachers.Net and suggested I introduce myself.
My novel has won several awards and has been assigned by a
number of schools. Most notably, both the South Carolina
Reading Initiative and the Providence, RI Teachers Union
have recommended my book.
I believe my novel covers some important topics students
should be discussing. We are seeing rapid advances being
made in genetic engineering, cloning, designer genes, and
other medical discoveries that are both fascinating and
frightening. The decisions yet to be made as to what we
should or shouldn’t do with our new knowledge will fall
mainly on the shoulders of the next generation- your
students. For those who are interested in using my novel
as a springboard to classroom discussion of these topics,
on my novel’s Amazon page you’ll find book discussion
questions toward the bottom in the Ampedia Community.
Thank you for your consideration of An Audience for
Einstein, and thank you to those who have already assigned
An Audience for Einstein
