Branson Students Meet Salman Rushdie

With the support of Julie Carlucci and Book Passage bookstore, a group of students from Evan Schnair's and Giles Scott's English classes were able to have a private audience with Salman Rushdie before his reading at the store. The classes are reading Rushdie's groundbreaking novel Midnight's Children as part of a class about nation states and identity. Rushdie answered questions about the motivations for his novel, how he discovered the narrative voice, and how he coped with the unexpected response that brought him worldwide fame.
