Advice columnist and author Meredith Goldstein spent Valentine’s Day at the 826 Boston Writers’ Room at the John D. O’Bryant School of Math and Science sharing lessons on writing a relationship column and a young adult romance novel.
The author gave ninth-grade English students a peek into the writing of her Boston Globe column Love Letters. Hands shot up to ask what it was like to give advice for a living. She also illuminated her research process for Chemistry Lessons, a young adult novel that blends romance with science. After the talk, the author signed copies of the book, donated by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt.
