Founders Workshop Heaven

I'm writing this in the living room of the home of the founders of HIGHLIGHTS in Honesdale, Pennsylvania. We're here for Rebecca Kai Dotlich's "Wordplay" workshop with special guests Alice Schertle and Susan Pearson. The weather is beautiful, the food is amazing, and the talent and comraderie has been simply inspiring. More to come!

Many thanks, South Hall Middle School!

Media Specialist Laura Losch has a great blog, and she was kind enough to share some pictures from Friday's visit - see link in list at left. (more…)

Greetings from Decatur, Georgia, where I've had entirely too little sleep and entirely too much fun! Details to come, but it's been a great festival so far with enthusiastic crowds and dynamic authors and illustrators.
