Speaking Engagement Calender Updates!

I had three very successful and fun speaking engagements in November that kept me busy.  On the 9th I spoke to the West Grove RAP GROUP (Retired Active People).  I was treated to a nice lunch, then gave a presentation to about 80 people, followed by a book signing.  Many thanks to Peg Cook for inviting me to speak with such a wonderful group of people!

On November 20th I spent the morning at the Centreville School in Centreville, DE.  Marcia Szelewski, the school librarian had read the article in the News Journal and invited me to come and speak to both the middle school and upper school students.  She did a VERY successful presale of the books and read most of the first book during library with the students.  They were so attentive and had so many wonderful questions - I could have stayed all day!  Coincidently, one of the teachers I met turned out to be the cousin of Bill Rotko! (the screenwriter who has optioned my books) SMALL WORLD!  Thank you Marcia, and all the Centreville School family for such a warm welcome!

This past Tuesday, November 27th, I visited the life skills class at DELCASTLE HIGH SCHOOL here in Delaware.  This was an amazing group of students!  They have been reading FLY LITTLE BIRD, FLY! in class, going over each chapter carefully to make sure everyone fully understands what is going on in the story.  They really enjoyed hearing Oliver speak on the tapes about what it was like to ride the orphan train.  A second portion of the tape that I played for them was Oliver telling what it was like when he was sleeping in the Sod House and the rats dug through the walls and were crawling on his bed!  The teacher, Mrs. Lehm, will be using BEYOND THE ORPHAN TRAIN in the class after Christmas and lots of the students purchased the second book for themselves.  It was a great day in a very welcoming classroom!  Thanks so much to teacher Kathy Lehm for having me come in!

My programmer is trying to convince me to move to .net
from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the costs.

But he's tryiong none the less. I've been using WordPress on several
websites for about a year and am worried about switching to another platform.
I have heard fantastic things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can import all my wordpress content
into it? Any help would be really appreciated! https://sites.google.com/view/dawlyatranseer/home

I'm impressed, I must say. Seldom do I encounter a
blog that's both equally educative and interesting,
and let me tell you, you've hit the nail on the head.

The problem is something which not enough people are speaking
intelligently about. Now i'm very happy that I came across this in my search for something regarding this. https://jobs.soflophp.org/employers/844234-

Hi there fantastic website! Does running a blog such as this require a great deal of work?
I have absolutely no knowledge of programming but I
was hoping to start my own blog soon. Anyways, if you have
any recommendations or techniques for new blog owners please share.
I understand this is off subject nevertheless I just needed to ask.
Thank you!

I was curious if you ever thought of changing the structure of your blog?
Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or 2 images.
Maybe you could space it out better? https://writeablog.net/ashsecond1/free-pugger-id-widgets-p9f7

Hi there! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any issues with hackers?
My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing
several weeks of hard work due to no back up. Do you have any solutions to stop hackers? https://www.vingle.net/posts/3838544
