I just now heard from a school in Kentucky that, thanks to encouragement from the wonder woman who organizes my school appearances, Michele Kophs, has received a Target grant which will pay for nearly the entire cost of my appearance*.
This is the second time Target has helped a school that’s invited me to visit. (It’s not that Target thinks I’m hot stuff or anything; they would support other author appearances this way, too!). So I encourage you to apply, too. Here’s the link.
Now, I’m off to enjoy the New Year at Shangri-Lar. See you in 2014!
|My happy place.
*Please note: this school contacted me before I took a leave of absence from doing school visits. Officially, I’m not doing them in this school year.
