I'm having the most fantastic time doing school visits ... reading from Hallow Hour and talking about writing and other cool stuff. So far, I've visited grades 5,6 and 7 students at St. Matthew's, Cowan Heights Elementary, Leary's Brook Junior High, Goulds Elementary, and Rennie's River Elementary. N&L has absolutely the most awesome kids ever!
Did my first school reading at Beachy Cove Elementary (where I was a student from K-6.) Read to 192 kids in grades 5&6. They were fantastic! Awesome questions you guys! It was a magical experience. Thanks so much Ms. Godden!
Friday past, October 11th, I had the tremendous pleasure of reading from Hallow Hour live via skype to a group of girls students in Bulera, Uganda. I believe in universal girl-child education and am a supporter of the Teachers Action for Girls campaign of the Canadian Teachers Federation. The reading was an amazing experiece and an awesome way to celebrate UN International Day of the Girl Child . A big hi to all my friends in Uganda!
