Ten writers for children. All with something to say.
As usual, I forgot to blog. This time I can blame it on a fabulous summer. You already know that in June I went to Washington, D.C. to receive the Pura Belpré Honor for Diego. Well, in July, I flew to Boston for my son's wedding. I enjoyed the wedding, the bride, and her family. But we also visited the JFK Library, Lizzie Borden's House (Guilty!), Plymouth Plantation, and the Seamen's Brethel in the movie of Moby Dick. I returned to teach at the Whidbey Island MFA where we heard wonderful speakers such as Virginia Euwer Wolff.
I, too, read Road to Tater Hill and liked so much that I assigned to my students.
My Sonia Sotomayor: Supreme Court Justice is out! The Spanish version received a Junior Library Guild.
I will be missing you again soon because I am going to Europe to research Picasso! But I'll try to connect from France and Spain.
