Yesterday was my very first Will Read 4 Food author visit. I spent the morning with 6th and 7th graders at the Brooklyn School for Global Studies in Carroll Gardens (Brooklyn, NY). The kids were awesome. They had such great questions for me! A BIG thank you to Judy, the librarian, for bringing me in and to the wonderful teachers who told me things about my book and how their students reacted to it that made my heart swell. Really.
Also, can't forget Dawn. Thank you, Honey Bun for thinking of me!
The collected food went to Food First located in my hometown of Red Hook (also Brooklyn). I truly hope this is gonna be a thing.
