SARASOTA Co., FL (WWSB) — A young author and comedian visited McIntosh Middle School recently to speak to students about literacy and creative writing.
Kyle Prue, who wrote the young-adult fantasy novel “The Sparks: Book 1 of the Feud Trilogy” at the age of 16, led two assemblies at McIntosh as part of his national book tour. He’s visited over 80 middle and high schools and met more than 60,000 students.
Now a freshman at Michigan, the award-winning book author is the founder of Sparking Literacy, a non-profit dedicated to lowering the dropout rate and encouraging teens to read, write and follow their dreams. Prue also trains as a comedian at Second City in Chicago, a common feeder club for Saturday Night Live.
