Many thanks, South Hall Middle School!

I was thrilled to spend Friday with the sixth graders at South Hall Middle School - my second time at South Hall Middle but my first time in their new location! And my first time with these particular sixth-graders, of course. (My husband actually went to South Hall Middle many moons ago!)

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. Read More

School Visits - in the summer?

I'm looking forward to spending the day with the Primrose Suwanee West students tomorrow! In addition to preschoolers, elementary-age students are there for the summer program. I'm honored to be sharing stories and writing workshops with them. They found me through the Chestatee Wildlife Preserve website, so I met them up at the Preserve for a field trip.

Cedartown, Poem in Your Pocket Day

Elizabeth Dulemba was right: the Cedar Valley Arts Festival folks put on a lovely show! Weather was a bit warm, but so are the organizers. Well done, ladies, and all those countless volunteer hours are for one purpose: to enhance the cultural and arts experiences of the community's youngsters. Bravo!

Tomorrow I'm delighted to be off to South Hall Middle School to enjoy the day with sixth-graders. Media Specialist Laura Losch goes above and beyond the call of duty to make reading fun for the students.  Read More
