Going to visit a school in San Ysidro in November. Gustavo, the librarian, has invited me down to talk about Diego's and Conor's adventure books. I'll be speaking to roughly 600 students in two different talks, all 4th, 5th, and 6th graders. Those are my favorite age groups. They're so full of wonder and awe, and they love fantasy dragon stories.
I'm also talking to a librarian in the Ventura School District about a visit. If she agrees and I can convince another school up there, I can make a day of it. A fantasy fiction book talk in the morning, a quick lunch, and then another author visit in the afternoon.
I love it!
"The day after you asked if the kids liked the book, I got a voluntary book report from a student on Diego’s Dragon. He said (in the report) that it was interesting and he liked it, it would make a good movie and he would tell his friends that “it is like the coolest book ever." This was without prompting . . . I swear!"
