I packed away my presentation materials a few days ago, after finishing my last talk of the school year.
My final audience may have been the most challenging to date — 3 and 4 year olds at a preschool that the young children in my family attend. But it might have also been the most fun! :-)
And with presentations over until September, I will turn my mind to various book projects: the revision of one manuscript and the beginning of another. Summer is a good time for writing.
As the year winds down, I'm remembering all the wonderful students, teachers and librarians I met this year. Thank you to everyone who invited me to visit their school.
Have a safe and happy summer!
