In January I hit the road to meet Bearhaven readers and their teachers. I started in Massachusetts, at my very own elementary school and also the school where my mother teaches fifth grade: Bancroft. It was the perfect place to do my first ever classroom visit… or first five!
At the end of the month I visited the Calverton School in Maryland where I spoke to third, fourth and fifth grade students, as well as the entire middle school (eek!) before doing my first book signing.
Just as I’d expected, one of the BEST parts about being a children’s book author is hanging out with kids! Next I’m off to Newark for the My Very Own Library Event, then Pennsylvania and Delaware for a few very special school visits. Can’t wait!
