Authorpaloozas and School Vists

Sherry Meidell, Matthew Kirby, Christine Graha







It’s been a busy week. I met students from Rowland Hall at the Sugarhouse Barnes and Nobles Authorpalooza. There were 19 authors and illustrators. I sat with Matthew Kirby and Christine Graham. I signed “Emma Jo’s Song” and “The Centaur”. Matthew signed “The Clockwork Three” and Christine Graham singed her “Peter Peter Picks a Pumpkin House” The students were very polite and it was fun to do a sketch in their autograph books.

I was also able to do a school visit at West Bountiful Elementary Literacy Night on Thursday. I read from “Full Steam Ahead” by Faye Gibbons and demonstrated sketching. We had one minor faceplant which caused one bloody nose. You never know what a school visit will bring. It looked something like this:
