AUTHOR'S DAY SCHOOL VISIT, Long Beach, CA
Last week I did an author visit at Monroe School in Long Beach, California, presenting to three enthusiastic groups of students--K-1, grades 2-3, and grades 4-5. The day was organized by librarian Nina Wool, who I first met quite a few years ago when I visited another school in Long Beach. She had shared my books with the students before my visit, which always helps them get more out of my presentation. At the end of the morning the PTA put on a delicious lunch for me and all the staff which we ate on tables outdoors, enjoying the beautiful sunshiny day. It was a great day to celebrate books and reading!
