My school visit was awesome! I presented to about forty-nine students and their parents at P.S. 42. The students participated in the Ezra Jack Keats Bookmaking Contest and let me tell you, they are a talented bunch. After Q & A, I was presented with this:
I know! I love it! I almost cried but thank goodness stopped myself.
Mr. Sharkey, the Principal, and Ms. Siblo, the Librarian, are doing a wonderful job. You can feel it the minute you step into the school. It was truly an honor to be there and I hope the students never lose sight of their dreams.
In other news, my new title is ... are you ready?
THE TROUBLE WITH HALF A MOON
What do you think? It was weird at first, I admit. But now, I really like it. I just received 1st pass pages yesterday. WhooHoo! It's gettingggggg closer ...
And, in other other news, Olugbemisola Rhuday-Perkovich, author of 8TH GRADE SUPERZERO (which I happened to love) blurbed my book! I may have fought off tears at P.S. 42 but they certainly won after I read her blurb. I'm gonna give her a big fat kiss when I see her at the Brooklyn Book Festival Mingle next week!
Whew! That is all. I think ...
