Calling all writers... 

Speechless by Adam P. Schmitt

On Being a Writer:
A discussion with Adam Schmitt,
Author of Speechless.

Students and their parents are invited to the Vanguard Gifted Academy in Batavia for a discussion with the author of Speechless, Adam Schmitt, about the process of writing, editing, marketing and publishing books.  Bring your questions! 

Adam P. Schmitt has lived outside of Chicago his entire life. His family currently lives in Oswego, IL, where the race of suburbia meets the quiet of farm country. 

He met his wife on an awful blind date, but since she was after his money and fortune from being a public middle school teacher, they did end up going out again. They have two boys (Aidan, Anderson) who keep them busy with sports, cat videos, and traveling anywhere they can. 

His days are spent as an educator, his nights as a husband, father, and writer.

A special thank you to Vanguard Gifted Academy hosting this event and for their ongoing support of CGCC and our mission to facilitate educational and emotional support for gifted children and their families. 

Please Note: This is not a drop off event. Parents are expected to remain at the school and are even encouraged to participate.
