Young adult literature author Meredith Zeitlin visits ACS Athens, during her trip to Athens and Crete. Ms. Zeitlin talks with students as young as 8th graders, who are interested in the job of an author. She's visiting Greece promoting her book "Freshman year and other unnatural disasters" and doing research for her upcoming new book, set to take place in Greece.
