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!

30 total marks.

Neat blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere? A theme like yours with a few simple adjustements would really make my blog stand out. Please let me know where you got your design. Thank you
