Why I Write – Thanks Baranoff Elementary Students!
Yesterday I had a school visit to the Buffaloes at Baranoff Elementary School in Texas. I had a great time sharing about story elements and talking some about my book, Secrets of the Cheese Syndicate. We even got a little Cajun storytelling in before the end. I’ve been out of the library and classroom for almost two years now and I will confess I miss that daily interaction with the students – although I was EXHAUSTED by the end of the day.
Thanks to Book People for setting up the visit and for Madeline Smoot’s service as chauffeur and escort extraordinare! And special thanks to Baranoff’s librarian, Susan Jetton and her wonderful parent volunteers for inviting us and providing such great hospitality – lunch was yummy!
But most of all, thank you to the students at Baranoff. Your energy and enthusiasm reminded me why I write – to share stories with children. This author is grateful for the opportunity to share mine with all of you.
