On February 8th, a group of seniors attended the annual Rancho Santa Fe Literary Society luncheon at the Fairmont Grand Del Mar Hotel.
The group had the opportunity to meet Owen Sheers, a Welsh author who has been called a "prodigiously talented" storyteller by the New York Times. The students spent a half-hour in private conversation with Mr. Sheers, discussing his new novel, I Saw A Man. They asked about the origin of the idea for the novel, the meaning behind several recurrent themes, and how Sheers' poetry influenced his prose. This is the sixth year Pacific Ridge has been invited to attend the event.
