The author shared some information on how she chose subjects to present in her book about the deaths of famous people. She also shared some upcoming project ideas, including title for some companion books.
Students got to ask some questions as well, and were interested to learn a bit more about the author. It was interesting to learn that Bragg never actually went to college, and she never considered herself to be a great student. In writing the book, she had intended to find a way to present a lot of little-known information about famous people in history in such a way that it was interesting and entertaining. She explained that the typical textbook format was confusing for her, and she wanted to include fun facts and longer information without being distracting.
Several students felt that Bragg had done a good job in creating a non-fiction book that wasn't "boring." Kerri Aguilar said that this was "the best non fiction book she had ever read," and Maria Rodriguez expressed interest in Bragg's future works.
