    Published Author Visits Ms. Blocker’s YA Literature Class

     

    Students in Ms. Blocker’s Young Adult Literature class had finished reading Jon Ripslinger’s Missing Pieces, a fictional account of the Klint murder that shook our community and took years to publish.  Ms. Blocker arranged for author Jon Ripslinger to talk with the students about the novel and writing and publishing. Ripslinger wasn’t always a writer.  He is a retired teacher from West High School (32 years).  His six children attended West and are living successful lives.  Mrs. Kroening, West LA teacher, is his daughter. If you’ve read any of his novels, you’ll know that he often uses names and places from the West end, where he still lives. He became fascinated with what the brother of James Klint might feel after finding out that his father had cut his mother into pieces and thrown them in the Mississippi.  Ms. Blocker’s students got a behind the scenes look at writing and publishing a novel.
