Author Randolph Randy Camp with High School Students after a Classroom Book Talk discussion on his prize-winning ‘Wet Matches’, December 2013.
On Monday, December 16th, author Randolph Randy Camp met with the sophomore Certified Nursing Assistant students from East High to discuss one of his novels, Wet Matches, that the students read. The students relished the opportunity to actually meet and discuss his work.
Wet Matches is a metaphoric story loaded with highly engaging characters who consistently demonstrate empathy as they mature and move beyond severe barriers in their life to become healed contributors to society. Mr. Camp shared his personal story of growing up in the segregated South and how his experience, and a song that he wrote as a teenager, became the plot of his book. Students were spellbound as he discussed the process of writing and publishing a book.
Mr. Camp recently had his third book, Twenty-nine Dimes, a Love Story, published, and his sequel to Wet Matches is in the final editing stages. – (Mr. Tim Wagner, Instructor-Teacher)
