Austin Bat Cave, a kids' writing nonprofit, operates under the novel idea that young people learn best when they're allowed to use their imaginations. For the past two years, perhaps ABC's most popular program has been its post-apocalyptic fiction summer camp, where budding Katniss Everdeens (and Suzanne Collinses) are encouraged to create their own literary dystopias. This summer, activities included a post-flood tour of Waller Creek, a class visit from an expert on insect-based food products, and a presentation from a local expert on Austin's power grid.
