Catching Up with "Flygirl" Author Sherri L. Smith

Smith, author of the fantastic historical novel, Flygirl, came to speak to the kids at Swanson Middle School.  She talked about her book, of course, but she also shared some insight on what it takes to be a writer and what it was like to meet one of her favorite writers.
