I had a great morning visiting Lake Placid Middle School kids. We talked a lot about books and writing, and they got a sneak peek at the cover for my upcoming figure skating book, SUGAR AND ICE. Sharing that secret was extra-fun because the school is quite literally in the shadow of the Olympic Center, where much of SUGAR AND ICE takes place.
Another cool thing about this particular school visit? The principal and I share a last name. (No, we’re not related!)
Dr. Dave Messner, Me, and Sara Kelly Johns, awesome Lake Placid librarian who is also running for ALA President!
And the best part? The kids. These 6th, 7th, and 8th graders were enthusiastic, inquisitive, and downright fun.
Rachel & Jillian were especially good sports, modeling 18th Century clothing when we talked about historical fiction!
Thanks, Lake Placid Middle School, for a fantastic February morning!
