Author visitMarch 9, 2011
On March 9, 2011, I went to the James S. Evans Elementary School in Wappingers Falls, New York, for an author visit with the fourth graders. I want to thank John Hobart and Helga MacKenzie for the invitation and the fourth grade teachers, Mr. Mike Clarke and Ms. Kirsten Burke for sharing their students with me. I enjoyed introducing my middle-grade historical fiction novel, Musket and Mobcap, about Sybil Ludington and Enoch Crosby. I also shared my original watercolor illustrations. The students asked insightful questions about writing and about the events surrounding the American Revolution. They returned to class with a souvenir bookmark, and a reading list of some of my favorite books. I left them with a complimentary copy of my book for their library.
Thanks again, students at Evans Elementary!
