Celebrating SLJ’s selection of Little Bo Peep Can’t Get to Sleep as a REMARKABLE READ (SEPT. 07). Yay !!!!
SCHOOL VISITS! (Which I love, Love, LOVE!) Many, many thanks to the students and staff at Paradise Valley Elementary (Morgan Hill CA), Spinelli Elementary (Antelope CA),and the schools in Buckeye Union School District (Cameron Park CA): Buckeye Elementary, Blue Oak Elementary , Silva Valley Elementary, William Brooks Elementary for their warm welcomes and enthusiastic responses to my assemblies. : )
And let’s not forget BOOK STORE VISITS, including my upcoming visit to Barnes & Noble at Sunrise in Sacramento on February 12th, 2008! I’ll be there at 10:30am for Storytime and I have a fun little Valentine craft based on Goldie Locks Has Chicken Pox, who’s just ITCHIN’ TO BE YOUR VALENTINE!
In between all of this, and of course the holidays (LOVELY time–glad they’re over!), I’ve been writing, trying not to bug my agent too much : ) (This agent stuff is fairly new to me and I’ve always been a bit of an over-achiever…), giving a few keynotes including a fun evening with the Placer Area Reading Council, putting together a power point retrospective to celebrate the 25th anniversary of our SCBWI Golden Gate Conference at Asilomar (which is coming up at the end of the month!), writing some more, trying to stay healthy (I think I’m immune to Airborne at this point…) and rooting for my awesome teenage daughter and her Girls’ Varsity basketball team! Go G!
And this weekend, I get to go to the NYC SCBWI conference and hang out with my Valentine in NYC!!!! Can’t wait! I promise to take copious notes, and not to take three more months to enter them in my blog. Check back next week to see if I’m true to my word or just in denial…
