My middle school students had a fabulous day with guest author Linda Urban (
), talking about A Crooked Kind of Perfect, writing, setting goals, and having the courage to follow dreams. If you ever — ever — have an opportunity to host Linda at your school, sign on the dotted line without delay. She’s an amazing presenter who left kids laughing as well as feeling inspired and appreciated. I took lots of photos, but I think this one might be my favorite –
Linda spent our after school period signing books in the school library, answering questions from kids, and listening — really, really listening — to their ideas about her book and their own goals and dreams. Thanks, Linda, for a fantastic day!
Tomorrow, I’ll be on the other side of the author visit, sharing Spitfire and presenting my Revolution program to middle school kids in Colchester and students in the after-school program in Brandon, Vermont. I’ll post on our 18th century adventures later this week!
