2012 Spring Celebration of Writing 
for Students and Teachers
Thursday, March 29, 2012
Oklahoma City University

This year's featured Speaker: Sonia Gensler
Featured Speaker:  Sonia Gensler, author of The Revenant.  
This Young Adult Novel is a Victorian ghost story set in a 
Cherokee girl's school in the old west.    
"An eerie and suspenseful work of historical fiction in which 
everyone is a murder suspect... Readers should be drawn in by 
the mystery and moved by Willie's struggles to fit in and 
negotiate her independence."   —Publishers Weekly  
Mrs. Gensler will speak about the process of writing, her book 
and how to get published.
