Two quick notes tonight — one looking back and one looking forward.
Looking back… I loved being part of the Robert’s Snow: For Cancer’s Cure fundraiser for the Dana Farber Cancer Institute this holiday season. In addition to posting interviews with some amazing illustrators to promote the snowflake auction, my students and I created our own snowflakes and sold them at school to raise additional funds. I just put the check in the mailbox, and another $220 is on its way to help researchers work toward a cure.
And looking forward… I’m off to Kindling Words this week and will be taking a break from blogging. But be sure to check in on Monday! Sara Zarr will be here for an interview about her new novel Sweethearts. The official release date is February 1st, but it’s already shipping & showing up in stores.
We’ll chat about Sara’s writing process, revision strategies, new projects, and her favorite kind of cookie. I hope you’ll stop by, too!
