Students in Scott Winkler’s English classes at Luxemburg-Casco High School do not have to look very far to find someone with an infectious enthusiasm for writing. Winkler has been a teacher by day for 25 years, but he is also a published poet, academic writer, and most recently, the author of the novel, “The Meadow.” The historical fiction book is about a young man at a crossroads between what he wants to be and the future his father expects of him. Winkler says his love of writing has helped him relate to students during his eight years at Luxemburg-Casco.
A book signing and release celebration will take place at Luxemburg-Casco High School beginning at 7 p.m. on Friday. You can hear more about the book and Winkler’s writing inspiration online with this story.
