Oregon Quarterly Feature on YA Novelist Gayle Forman

Pretty compelling piece of writing from the Summer 2011 issue of Oregon Quarterly... the Magazine of the University of Oregon.

Written by 1995 Oregon grad Kimber Williams, "Books to Write" is about Gayle Forman, author of If I Stay, the 1999 Young Adult bestselling novel. It's a solid profile by Williams and provides a view of Forman's life and how a tragic life experience led to writing the book.

It's pretty profound stuff and gives a good sense of Forman's life and experience as a novelist. Kind of inspiring in a way...
