Example text

Peck researched the subject extensively and visited schools in Plano, Texas; Westchester County, New York; and Beverly Hills, California. He also went to suicide-prevention programs and talked with suicide hotline volunteers. He initially tried to write the novel from the point of view of Trav, the boy who kills himself, but this did not work. Peck decided that if Trav could express himself, then maybe he would not reach the desperate point of suicide. He realized the story was better told from the point of view of a friend.

He met George Nicholson, a young editor who would become one of the leading figures in the business of publishing books for children and young adults. Nicholson would later publish Peck’s first novel. During this time, Peck wrote a column on the architecture of historic neighborhoods for the New York Times and contributed articles to the Chicago Tribune and the Saturday Review of Literature. In 1970, Peck published a poetry anthology that he edited called Sounds and Silences: Poetry for Now. A second poetry anthology, Mindscapes, was published in 1971.

While this may be important, Peck believes it is even more crucial to focus on actually teaching, on expanding and sharpening minds. Peck also recognizes that it was easier to be a teacher when he was a kid, as it was also easier to be a kid. The problems that often plague schools today, such as drugs and guns, did not yet exist. At that time, teachers were also a part of the community—they lived in the town in which they taught. After adjusting to high school students, Peck was assigned to teach junior high.
