Good night’s sleep. Up at 5 working on I,Q2. The wonderful Marie sneaked out of the room while I was getting ready and brought me a cup of Starbucks. Gotta love that, and her.
Busy day today. I’m at Byrd Middle School, picked up at the hotel by the very nice Betsy Newman and Heather Bradenburg, where I’m speaking to 6th, 7th, and 8th graders. This is a two day event. Sponsored by The HCPS Middle School Author Committee and Henrico Education Foundation.
Tomorrow I’ll be at Rolfe Middle School. The Henrico Foundation is bringing students in from Tuckahoe, Hungry Creek, Short Pump, Pocahontas, Byrd, Mt Vernon, Fairfield Wilder, Moody, Brookland, Elko, and Rolfe.
As they pulled in to pick me up, yet another handsome bald man exited the hotel who they mistook for me. I stood by and watched the humorous scene unfold as they accosted the good looking gentleman thinking he was me.
The librarians at Byrd (yes there are 2 here, which is a beautiful idea) at Byrd are Janis Jones and Shannon Hyman.
The librarian at Rolfe are … They could not have been more welcoming.
Here’s a link about the two day event with a blog from students about my books. Here’s some information about their annual author event and the students blog.
Beautiful day here in VA after 2 days of record breaking rain, thunder, and lighting.
Tonight I have a Skype visit with Midland High School in Pleasant Plains, AR, hosted by Literary Coach Angela Muse (I love her last name…because it’s something I hope for every morning when I get up to write). A good number of students showed up for the virtual Q &A. Angela gave away free books to those who attended. Very cool!
