I spent a fun-filled event reading and speaking to the staff and students of Nelson Elementary. We divided our day into three presentations. Kindergarten and First, Second and Third, then Fourth and Fifth grades. They were all well behaved and participated enthusiastically.
I spoke to the K-1st graders about the process of writing. I even had a few budding authors in the audience – I was very impressed.
The 2nd and 3rd graders received a double treat of a presentation about the process of writing stories and a brief look into immigration and ancestry. They learned a lot that day.
The 4th and 5th graders received an even special treat from me. They got to listen to a few chapters of my new YA novel “Dream Quest: Sanctuary.” They wanted to hear more but the bell rang for lunch so I promised their teacher that I was going to send them more chapters and they can tell me what they thought of it.
Overall, it was a great day.
