Suffield Welcomes Garth Stein

Noted author Garth Stein, who wrote last summer's all-school text The Art of Racing in the Rain, visited classes and spoke to the Suffield community on October 1, 2013. Garth related his own experiences to the 2012-13 school theme of resilience, describing his resilience in getting his work published. With belief in himself and his abilities, Garth described overcoming the doubts of agents and publishing houses, as well as his previous lack of commercial success. He also shared his thoughts about the writing process and read an excerpt from his book, a novel that has proved very popular among Suffield students and faculty.
