Second Story (or check them out on Facebook) goes into schools and puts on after school programs and writing camps to help kids learn to love writing. It’s an organization that’s near and dear to my heart and it is raising money by bringing in some writers and staging a zombie-filled event, Friday and Saturday, October 26-27, called Write of the Living Dead.
