Nice of you to stop by for a little reading. I hope all is well. Me? I'm steady!
On 29 March 2013, I was invited to the Ann Arbor Learning Community to do an Author Talk with 4th - 8th graders who were in the final stages of celebrating Reading Month at their school.
Many of the students entered the gymnasium wearing pajamas and carrying pillows and blankets in honor of Pajama Day. They assembled on the floor and made themselves very comfortable. I almost wanted to ease into some slippers, sit in a rocking chair, and relax with them. Instead, I shared my writing story, read three chapters from Wrinkles Wallace: Knights of Night School, and answered some great questions from the students and staff. After my presentation, I was even asked to sign some autographs. NICE!
Here are some pictures of my visit to the AALC
Thanks again for allowing me to participate in the Reading Month festivities! Next time I just might bring those slippers...
