I would not be the person and writer I am today if not for the teachers and librarians in my life who encouraged me to read and write, introduced me to classic literature and showed me how to deconstruct it, and taught me all the important nuances of comma placement. So I’m delighted to be one of eight children’s authors participating in an upcoming educator appreciation reception in my area to celebrate B&N’s Spring Educator Appreciation Week (April 14-22):
WHEN: Wednesday, April 18 from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.
WHERE: Barnes & Noble Exton
301 Main Street
Exton, PA 19341
There will be discounts, contests, and giveaways, as well as two special presentations:
5:00 p.m. – K.M. Walton: How to Get Your Students to Write Like They Mean It
5:30 p.m. – Beth Kephart: Story Topics That Involve the Whole Class at the Same Time
Followed by a mega signing with eight area authors:
Monica Carnesi – LITTLE DOG LOST (picture book)
Ame Dyckman – BOY + BOT (picture book, illustrated by Dan Yaccarino)
Amy Garvey – COLD KISS (YA)
Beth Kephart – UNDERCOVER, HOUSE OF DANCE, NOTHING BUT GHOSTS, THE HEART IS NOT A SIZE, DANGEROUS NEIGHBORS, YOU ARE MY ONLY (YA)
Elisa Ludwig – PRETTY CROOKED (YA)
E.C. Myers – FAIR COIN (YA)
Dianne K. Salerni – WE HEAR THE DEAD (YA)
K.M. Walton – CRACKED (YA)
So, if you know any teachers, please let them know about this exciting event!
All thanks to fellow Apocalypsie K.M. Walton and Stephanie, the community relations manager at B&N Exton, for putting this whole thing together. I’m looking forward to meeting many other authors and educators!
