Flint-born author Patrick Jones spent a few hours this past Monday morning with students at Lapeer Community High School. Jones worked with students in Bill O’Bryan’s English classes on the writing process. He engaged in conversation about the books he has authored, including those the students have already read in class.
Jones, a former librarian for teenagers, is noted as a writer of fiction tailored to young adults and has won many awards. Jones, who was born in Flint, now resides in Minneapolis.
