“I Will Always Write Back” – Martin Ganda in Miami

Martin Ganda WR Bio PicGanda_Book The Betsy’s Writer’s Room welcomes Martin Ganda, co-author of the National Bestselling Memoir, “I Will Always Write Back” as part of the Writers for Young Readers Series.

“It started as an assignment. Everyone in Caitlin’s class wrote to an unknown student somewhere in a distant place. 

Martin was lucky to even receive a pen-pal letter. There were only ten letters, and fifty kids in his class. But he was the top student, so he got the first one. That letter was the beginning of a correspondence that spanned six years and changed two lives.  In this compelling dual memoir, Caitlin and Martin recount how they became best friends –and better people–through their long-distance exchange. Their story will inspire you to look beyond your own life and wonder about the world at large and your place in it.” (Little, Brown Books for Young Readers).

During his residency at The Betsy – South Beach, Ganda will speak at Books & Books (on September 11) and will speak to students at a Miami-Dade County Public School to discuss writing and his life growing up in Zimbabwe.
