In Mrs. Bass’s ninth grade English classes, they have been reading “Mississippi Trial 1955,” by Chris Crowe. As part of their learning experience, Mrs. Bass’s classes invited Dr. Crowe, an English Education professor from BYU, to come and speak to them about his book and the history behind it.
The book is about the famous Mississippi Trial and a boy who lived during that time. Dr. Crowe spoke about the cause of the trial, the results, and how different society was back then from how it is today.
“I’m glad to meet new people who are reading my books,” Crowe said. Springville Junior High was grateful for the opportunity to hear from such a famous author and were able to connect the words on the page to the story that was told.
