Sarasota Military Academy Brings Award-Winning Author for Student Meet-and-Greet

Arts & Culture


Kyle Prue, author of The Feud trilogy, which includes award-winning The Sparks, will visit Sarasota Military Academy (SMA), on Thursday, August 22, to speak to students and staff at the SMA high school and SMA Prep middle school campuses. Prue began writing The Sparks, the first book in The Feud series, at the age of 16 years old and his books have won numerous national and international awards including the FAPA President’s Book Awards for Best Fiction and Best Fantasy for Young Adults in both 2015 and 2017. Prue is also the founder of Sparking Literacy, a nonprofit dedicated to inspiring teens to read, write and follow their dreams in an attempt to lower the high school dropout rate.

Select students read The Sparks during summer break, and will attend a Meet the Author breakfast sponsored by SMA parent Joanne Fabec. Students and staff will have an opportunity to purchase copies of the book for Prue to sign, following the assembly.
