Visiting Author – Secondary

The Visiting Author – Secondary program is one of the targeted  programs the ICCSD Foundation supports. In partnership with Hills Bank’s Community Reading Month, a book author is selected each year to visit the District and speak with students about their writing and experiences.

In 2019-2020, the secondary Visiting Author will be Justin A. Reynolds who will visit with our 9th and 10th graders. Stay tuned for more details about his visit.

More About the Author

justin a. reynolds has been a pest control operator in NYC, night security guard, steel mill janitor, an intern at NASA Glenn Research Center, salesman of high-end faucet fixtures, and carpet-flooring installer (his first job ever!). In between he attended several colleges and universities, before finally settling in at Cleveland State University for English literature and creative writing. He’s been the recipient of various fellowships, including the diversity award at NY State Writers Institute at Skidmore College. He was most recently a registered nurse, specializing in hematology and oncology, before trading his stethoscope for a pencil; he likes to think both instruments reveal the heart. He lives in northeast Ohio, home to snow, Lake Erie, and the Cavaliers. OPPOSITE OF ALWAYS is his debut novel.
